Not yet unfortunately ...
It is ~370 MB using zisofs, but should be more around 300 with squashfs 
(which will be coming out stable in gentoo-sources-2.4.26). I am on a 
relatively slow DSL connection, so I want to make sure that I have the 
best product possible before uploading.

So, what is the tracking number on those releng boxen being shipped to 
OSU again? ;)

As for "GentooMove" (perhaps GentooMooooove for Larry the Cow), it 
doesn't look that hard to implement. In fact, it is already in my TODO 
list. I have some more Catalyst cleanup/ documentation to do, but after 
that, all my time will go into this effort.
