I suppose you could also integrate things like `groups` and `classes` so you 
could have standard packages for all your installed systems if they are in 
those groups. Something a bit like zero-conf from apple ?

That i suppose you could do without actually having a database layer 
although a database layer with some nice administration tools would sure 
make it easier.

| Well, it did occur to me, that it would be very useful virtualizing the
| database layer, so that we can use whatever database we want to choose.
| If that's a filesystem based, or a real database, or a REMOTE database.
|
| A remote database would allow managing a horde of gentoo installations
| much easier. It would open up a possiblity of writing a tracker to
| handle security updates, and packages checking on a
| least-change-welcomed corp enviornments.
| This tracker will have to check only one database.
|
| Of course, you can do it right now, only you will have to sync the
| database after every change, or have the tracker poll every host (which
| is abit of the sub-optimal side).
|
| This isn't really "performance", though.
