be my guest to change it. It was just for clarification for myself
as I always mix up -z vs -n ... did that too many times.

/mnt/cdrom and /mnt/livecd will both be mounted at the SAME time.
One for the cdrom itself, the other for the loopback. Don't worry about
/var/lib/livecd for now.

Well, as long as it's silent on shutdown if it doesn't find something
to unmount/bind, I'm fine with that, otherwise we'll get a flurry of

dude, I took over -r4, and many people are using that for building
livecds right now. I just updated what I already had. I didn't screw
up anything else. Don't get your panties in a wad. I'm just doing
what needs to be done to get stuff done without the bureaucracy of
everything else. My ebuild is keyworded -*, and it was NOT committed
to the rc-scripts CVS. Heck I even have RESTRICT="nomirror". Can't
get much more harmless than that. Calm down dude, not touching a damn
thing you had done. I tried to resign from doing any livecd work at
all, but that's just not feasible apparently b/c stuff has to get done
cut me some slack, I work a full-time job (more than fulltime actually)
and I just don't have time to waste.
