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...
