Coming back to grant's point a bit. There are projects that were/are
developed entirely on non-gentoo infrastructure (I believe the eselect
stuff, for example), yet is becoming default on gentoo systems
(opengl-update, for starters, has gone the way of the dodo, to be
replaced by eselect).
How does this agreement play to things like that? If eselect goes on
(and based on its technical merits, there is every reason that it
should) to become the default tool in gentoo, then where does that leave
us? I'm with Grant on this: I'm not convinced.
