Been there, done that. They didn't say anything about having to  
reinstall. To tell the truth, they treated me better once they knew I  
wasn't another Dumb User(tm). Only done it once, though, so I may  
have just been lucky. Please share any relevant personal experiences  
you have.

Not sure I understood you correctly. Do you mean to say that we'd be  
able to use fink and DP repos and have portage understand them?  
Obviously, using their repos would be pretty useless for the most  
part, but it'd still be an interesting exercise in abuse of portage  
features.
