The progressive profile already is, and getting moreso as it matures.  
fex it can/will be used to merge macos components from Apple  
installation media. So it is in fact handling the compilation of the  
'bsd' portion of OS X from source as well as managing the proprietary  
libs and tools like CoreAudio, XCode, etc. This way, packages can do  
things like "DEPEND='>=dev-util/xcode2.1 >=media-sound/coreaudio'"  
and so on. So used in this manner, portage is anything but a second  
class citizen as everything in / is in fact managed by portage.

Even once prefixed installs are available I intend to continue  
development in this area to facilitate extremely minimal OS X  
installs for specialized applications.
