If it's a portage thing, please have it be a FEATURE that can be toggled off. Symlink trees are ugly, as someone else mentioned, and not everyone will want them. Alternatively, as I suggested in a different subthread, make it a separate package. Then people can install it if they want/need. This package could even include a script that hooks into the existing portage phase-hook structure, and presumably similar scripts for the other PMs, thus making the whole thing automatic. -- Duncan - List replies preferred.
