Don't you think that ~arch makes it easily available enough for people
who *want* to port stuff?
If I run stable Gentoo, I'm interested in a /stable/ system(tm) and not
the latest Python version that people are still fiddling with.
Especially since the Gentoo core system extensively uses Python. By the
way, does Portage work with Python 3 yet?

Yeah, right, let's install it on all those stable machines, but then
not use it.
