If nobody else is interested I think I might take this one - I find it handy. I forked a copy to github and merged in the patches from portage, and will see about addressing the other two bugs (though from what I can tell one seems rare and the other seems similar to a known issue in dispatch-conf so they should be low-priority). If there are other issues festering that I should be aware of before keeping it around please let me know. Not being a master of perl or portage hooks I'm not sure how much I'll be able to extend it, but I can at least be responsive to bugs and patches, and can make the decision to terminate it if it becomes unmanageable. If anybody is interested in contributing to it (or taking it over if you'll be more active) let me know. Rich
