yes yes, it's very easy to throw rocks in hindsight at developers who, quite literally, were in completely new waters. not just in the Gentoo/PMS world, but in multilib *anywhere* (other distros, upstream packages, etc...). i'd say it's almost as easy as shooting fish in a barrel, but mythbusters proved that's actually kind of hard. -mike
