I just read http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=82513 What did happen to GLEP 22? I have to say, I find the idea of over-loading the collision-protect hack with new macos-specific meaning inside N different ebuilds (by FEATURES expansion) quite unpleasant. To my mind, progressive implies keyword=ppc-darwin/ppc-od, and "2nd class" implies ppc-macos and that implies a prefix (substitute x86 or x64 for ppc as you see fit). I don't think it likely that apple will open source Mac OS X (or eleven, or even system seven). I mean, is it likely that a macos profile could ever be anything but second fiddle? -f
