I did attempt to hack the kde-cvs eclass to use unsermake, it didn't
work too badly, the only problem was that every time you built a kde-cvs
based package the unsermake dir would be re-fetched.

I suppose it wouldn't be too hard to create a standalone unsermake
ebuild, however unsermake was a little unreliable last time I tried it.
