I agree, and I'll reiterate my proposal, so that someone can finally shoot 
it down and I can shut up.

I think the progressive profile should be replaced with an upstream darwin 
profile. A macos profile should inherit that and add a prefix.

I don't think a macos keyword is actually needed. If you have a 
ppc-darwin8 keyword, the ppc-macos-10.4 profile could just inherit that 
and add a macos USE flag (for those ebuilds that work differently under 
macos than darwin).

For that to work, you just need more dependency information in the ebuild 
(i.e. if you depend on CoreAudio, or some other part of macos not in 
darwin, it should be listed as a dep). As for how CoreAudio gets into the 
tree, you can keep using package.provided (one version in the profile for 
ppc-macos-10.4 and another in the profile for ppc-macos-10.3) until there 
is a way to detect vendor packages automatically.

Most of this requires the portage rewrite. No idea what you should do 
until then.
