10 my main problem with this is that Gentoo for obvious reasons never
11 unmerge a kernel. if ~x86 would yield a few kernels every week for
12 someone who has both vanilla-sources and development-sources
13 installed, well, that'll take _space_.
15 first in DISTFILES, then as a package if one uses buildpkg and last
16 under /usr/src. for most people, this will be two compressed and
17 one unpacked piece of kernel source for each installed kernel.
19 this would, if nothing else, make "emerge -U world" slightly
20 annoying to deal with.
