I recall finding some information on something that was being worked on 
that sounded very interesting. It had to do with user created 'Profiles' 
or something like that. I searched the archives, and didn't find 
anything on this, but I remember seeing something a while back, but now 
cannot find it. I guess I can't remember the keywords I used to find it 

Basically, it was a way for someone to define a set of packages for 
specific applications, for example:

emerge daniel-mail

would emerge a Mail Server based on the packages selected and configured 
by 'Daniel' (just a Gentoo user) - say, djbdns, Postfix, Cyrus-IMAP, 
OpenLDAP and Squirrelmail), with everything preconfigured to run 
together, with only DNS.

What is the status of this functionality?
