However, I want this to work on linux flavors other than gentoo and the
python-2.6 requirement of portage is causing problems.
One way to work around this is to use one of the portage variants
at least for the bootstrap stage. AFAICT, pkgcore seems to support
Is there a list of modifications that were merged in portage to get it
to work with the prefix tree? How much work would it be to make pkgcore
or paludis support these?
