Flush the cache... Makes a world of difference.  Additionally, he is 
talking about what is *done* with that data after the fact, iow other 
words walking the entire vdb to find all affected pkgs.  Can pretty 
much gurantee after a build that data isn't likely to be available 
(part of the reason portageq calls during building are slow).

Could collapse that into a simple mapping, but that introduces 
backwards compatibility issues...
