Hmm, I always thought sys should contain everything that's required for building itself and everything that's required for a minimum runtime system. dev-lang/python includes tcl-tk support, sys-devel/python not otherwise we must must xfree/tcl-tk to sys which is a bad idea. So dev-langy/python can not go away. But in sys we only need spython with a basic set of libs. Libs must be placed in /lib because spython is used by env-update which is called during boot and so it must work without /usr mounted. -Achim-
