Yes, that would be possible, but I'd need to do a lot of file comparisons to eliminate duplicate files in dev-lang/python.

Well, I'd like to have a decent implementation of python in the base distribution. Personally, I like the "rebuild sys-devel/python if you need X support" solution. If you like, I can build the python.tbz2 over here on the server, where I don't have X or tcl/tk. -- Daniel Robbins <drobbins@g.o> President/CEO Gentoo Technologies, Inc.
