There are some fluff in baselayout ebuild not needed.  I will
let you know what after I have worked through it.  Also, I still
think we should have USE=livecd to even install livecd related
scripts, etc - more after review.

a livecd - just me though.

actually work with the new baselayout?

I do not see the rush - all who is appropriate, can get things
done for the time being, but I really want a few days to sit
and sort through this.
