You need a glep here frankly; per the norm, if you want things to move 
faster, then put in time- aka, generate a patch against PMS, write a 
patch for portage, etc, you get the idea.  The bit re: a PMS patch is 
mostly that in looking at your proposal... well, I personally don't 
want to write that patch (nor do I suspect ulm/ciaran do either).

One thing to note; this has been posted for all of 2-3 days; that's 
not exactly much time for 1) people to comment, 2) people to frankly 
comprehend the quite dense description you wrote.

Please write a glep covering details of the implementation, 
background, preferablly why this route over others.  Bluntly... clue 
everyone else in rather than hoping they'll just sign off on a fairly 
opaque list of things. :)  It'll be useful for dev education also- 
which is a bit of a requirement for stuff of this sort considering 
it's not going to be a magic deploy/shit works everywhere situation I 
suspect.

Would also be useful getting commentary from crossdev folk considering 
your solution is intended to be (best I can tell) full cross 
compilation support, and they've been leading that front for many, 
many years.

Cheers-
