Another thing that crossed my mind when going to work this morning:

When people submit bugs for working/new packages, they usually tell it
works fine, or in some cases that they applied a little patch to get it
working.  However, before even thinking of keywording, I want to know
whether the package reasonably works.  That means, I want to do some small
sanity check, or just functional check that the application or library
appears to work as expected.  I think you cannot expect any dev to know
every package in portage, let alone being common with using it.  So I'd
propose to add a little note on the "reporting bugs" section that asks the
users to -- if they can come up with it:
1) in case of an application tell us how you can test it works: example,
streamripper, do streamripper http://some.host.com/music path/to/bla.mp3,
listen to the mp3, it appears to work fine
2) in case of a library tell us what application can be used to test it,
preferable small and direct: example, libpcre, emerge mp with USE flag
pcre, start mp on a file, press Ctrl-a navigate in the menu to search,
type a regular expression search like .(build|merge|keyword)+, check it
matches an appropriate string
