Whoa. Looks like you covered pretty much everything I'd have to say  
on the topic. Good job! 10,000 brownie points for Finn.

Basically, Brian Harring (ferringb) is deeply involved in rewriting  
much of the portage internals. Once the rewrite is complete, we can  
expect things like ICANINSTALLTO (from [1] above) to be implemented  
very easily.

Brian needs help. If you're willing to help, contact him, or join  
#gentoo-portage on freenode.
