It looks like Brad found a good workaround for this. We can unmask the
baselayout we need (-r4) in our catalyst portage snapshot, and force a
re-merge of baselayout on the livecd by listing it in livecd/packages:
in the catalyst spec file.

And in hindsight, I guess it's good that our baselayout is masked -* for
now, as we may need additional fixes in the coming week or two and may
not want to keep pushing out new stable baselayouts every few days just
for livecd stuff.

Sorry for any pushiness from us; we've been working extra-hard on
catalyst and we can become frantic because of our desire to have 
catalyst livecds work for people asap -- which then opens up the
possibility of sleeping more, catching up on other important work, and
having a real life again :) A lot of it is also that we know that other
people are waiting for us, which puts pressure on us to work too hard --
and then we start demanding that from others which isn't fair, or in
this case even necessary.

For 2004.0, our deadline needs to be "as soon as possible --  without
working too hard, being too pushy, getting frantic or burning out." And
in that, we will try to do a better job.

Best Regards,

Daniel
