6 MySQL4 itself works fine, we are all aware of that. However after it is
7 installed, many things need to be recompiled as you are aware. Portage
8 needs reverse dependancy support for this to become a reality having
9 people run 'revdep-rebuild' is not the solution (and even that fails in
10 some cases already).
12 I do know that more things than MySQL4 are waiting for
13 reverse-dependancies. OpenSSL 0.9.7 is one of them (it requires a MUCH
14 larger rebuild than MySQL does).
16 Carpaski would a better person to ask of the current status of
17 reverse-dependancies in portage than myself.
