11 Yes; we won't be adding the high-speed database option until later. Our
12 immediate priority is to optimize our existing algorithms and techniques
13 and enhance Portage functionality to provide better QA tools to our
14 developers. Since this requires continual changes to our sources, it
15 wouldn't make sense to move to a compiled language at this point either.
17 There is no official documentation on the portage db stuff yet, but
18 there is some that is going to be appearing soon -- the new db api in
19 Portage 2.0.2 is maturing nicely.
