Doesn't save for config at the very least; actual loading, didn't check. As for load, well, trojan the env to find out (5am my time, going back to bed, someone else can figure it out). My inclincation is loading for info/config, saving for config, but portage long term behaviour here on the saving for config is likely going to be problematic. ~harring
