This is also high on my "things to hack" list. (Not that I'd ever come
up with something acceptable, but it's worth a try. :)

I would love to see the whole PKGDIR variable vanish altogether and
merge binary builds into ebuilds, creating a sort of apt-get / portage
mixture, all with a "standard" ebuild setup. By allowing binaries to
take on all the functionality of ebuilds, features like USE flags,
multiple versions per repository, varying CFLAGs, and other such
features are a given. The binary can be downloaded via standard ebuild
methods, even.

Something to chew on.

    Are you ready?
