Why does everyone always say "like games" anyway?  Games are essential,
man.  KDE and Gnome are cruft... ;p

Honestly, if you're worried about the portage tree, stop updating it so
much.  There's really no need to be vigilant in portage updates.  This
will become even more true in the future with the security only
updates.  One other feature I would like to see is the ability to rsync
only certain parts of the tree, similar to how cvs works.  I should be
able to be in my $PORTDIR/games-fps and do an "emerge dirsync" (or
whatever) and have it sync just that directory.  I think it would save
the load on the servers if people are looking for specific updates to
specific packages.
