| To head off the "it's not going to work for vim-*", yah, you'll be
| boned and have to install duplicate vim-* into the global prefix.
| Bluntly, either you dive in and start wading through the problems
| (fixing them as you go), or you sit back listening to how it's never
| going to work (thus accomplishing nothing).
It can be made to work, so long as you don't a) jump in without proper
planning, b) assume that you'll not have to modify ebuilds and c)
demand that as soon as it's available, it works for all ebuilds.
