Thanks Alec, thats a really awesome explaination :)

My server runs a 5am script which does this, so i'm not too worried 
about that machine. For those who are curious, its an Athlon 1800+ on a 
10Mbit link, and it takes between 1 and 10 mins to process " emerge 
--sync --quiet; emerge -upvD world; glsa-check -t all "

My home pc is on a 2Mbit link, so I only sync when i feel like checking 
for updates, or when I want to install something new. This will take 
minimum of 10 mins just to update the cache most times, sometimes more.
Being a home pc, I'm happy to have some unstable stuff installed. How 
messy would it be to just run ~amd64 portage? would this work, or do I 
ideally need to make the entire base system ~amd64? (ugh).

Jeremy
