I'll bring it through -dev just to be sure.

Regarding #gentoo suggestions, a quick grep in my logs shows it being
mentinoed about twice a week, mostly by users (there aren't that many
developers on it) but also a few developers (amongst some in the qa team).

Of course, that's not considering the context of the discussion - it may be
very well a specific scenario there.
