easily fixed with some eclass magic (we should get after your mentor to show you
the ins and outs of the eclasses - and for those of you not sure, I'm cab's
mentor :)

well, what i was trying to suggest (but this goes back to fiddling with @inc
patch) is to create an agnostic vendor directory that is devoid of perl version
information so that it's always /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl for portage installed
modules - but this is said without actually see if it would work with a slotted
perl. Might make more headaches than it's worth (at which point, what's the
point in a slotted perl if you have to rebuild everything multiple times perl
perl).
