Subject: Re: Re: baselayout changes for livecds

yes that would work, but drobbins already expressed a concern with
USE=livecd   Since we base our livecds off of a stage3 which would
NOT have USE=livecd, we have to reemerge baselayout.  I don't believe
catalyst is capable of reemerging the same package that already exists
on the system without hacking it up some, so the easier way around would
be to make everyone bump the baselayout -rN and resnap the portage tree
and make it depend on that version of baselayout.  Just another
step which the whole point to catalyst was to have everything in portage
and easy to use so general users could create their own livecds with
their own apps, etc.
It is a solution, just not the best at this point :/
I still don't see the security concern though, but perhaps I'm
thick headed.
