Hi,

related to renaming things:

Have there been any more thoughts or even implementations to [1]
about having a function to query the prefix of a required package ?

My first goal are not the interdomain-deps, but to have a portage-
feature to install each non-system-package into a separate subdir within
the same portage-domain.
