Had meant to send this out earlier, but apparently I forgot to send...

Which overlay was commons-modeler coming from when you were tried
emerging it? emerge -v commons-modeler should tell you this.
At some point, jmx was renamed to sun-jmx. This was perhaps a month or
so ago, and also should be fixed in the overlays. In general, before
reporting badness happening, you also should make sure you a) emerge
sync and svn update the overlays and b) emerge -Du world.

This isn't really related to the new overlay so much, so probably
shouldn't have been included with the rest of the report...

That being said, this will probably get a low priority by the
developers because a) it doesn't have a lot of immediate benefits, and
b), as the Java herd has been short-handed for some time, and already
has enough on its plate. Patches are more than welcome though.

There may be some issues with using more than one of the experimental
ovlerlay together, so I wouldn't mix them unless you know what your
doing and/or want to help make them play nice :) If you are going to
play with fire, I'd recommend using a 1.4 system VM to get the same
behavior as is in portage.

sys-libs/db was removed awhile ago from gentoo-experimental-overlay.
As already mentioned, please do a svn update before reporting badness.

Thanks for the input.
