I think it is an interesting idea, especially once we have prefixed 
installs and perl, python, etc. will all have to be compiled before 
portage will be happy.

I have been experimenting with 64-bits as well.  I was able to compile a 
few things like libxml2 using 64-bits, enabling 64-bits applications 
that use those libraries to link against them and use them.  This is 
great, and once portage supports it, I'd like to have 64-bits versions 
of zlib, etc. to be able to have true 64-bits application userland. 
Considering Fink doesn't do this and I've seen many requests for MonetDB 
using 64-bits on OSX Tiger, I guess some people would be really happy if 
they just installed a ~50MB Gentoo thinger and then be able to compile 
and use MonetDB using 64-bits on their Macs...
