Everyone else has already made valid points. I'm just picking this one to reply to now. Please remove the colors you have added. If you need a new function, say "eqawarn", we should have that added in the next EAPI with a description of when and where to use it. In the meantime, Petteri proposed a nice solution awhile back that would centralize this so it is not a one-off hack. Here is a link to his original proposal: http://archives.gentoo.org/gentoo-dev/msg_44d395a1b887468051a1e1c049e99ba3.xml Thanks, -- Mark Loeser email - halcy0n AT gentoo DOT org email - mark AT halcy0n DOT com web - http://www.halcy0n.com
