You should take the context into consideration when trying to understand
Kito's comment, which was in reply to my post about Gentoo/Darwin. In that
light, he is absolutely right, collision-protect is counter-productive.
In the context of Gentoo/OS X, I think everyone agrees that prefixed
installs would be preferable to collision-protect.
If you install Gentoo/OS X, you will find collision-protect is used by the
default profile. You concerns seem to be aimed at the progressive profile
that some users prefer. It is your choice.
