The Exherbo approach relies upon the package manager being good at
dealing with larger numbers of interdependent repositories. Unless
you've got a way of making Portage support things like repository deps,
unavailable-format repositories  and multiple repositories with
multiple dependencies, switching is going to make things pretty much
unusable for anyone using Portage...
