I wouldn't suggest that at all. According to the Gentoo Portage team
regenworld *isn't* for adding missing ebuilds to the world file. I
was doing an "emerge -up --deep world" and it was missing stuff, so I
thought regenworld should fix this -- wrong! It is just to be used as
a starter world file in a recovery situation, you'll still have to add
a lot of things to it manually and sometimes get rid of things that
you don't have installed.
