9 I'm a pretty decent c++ hacker, I could probably help w/ this, but
10 I'll need to look at the python extension docs. I also thought it
11 would be really cool to make a portage manager for X using the python
12 gtk+ bindings. I think it would be best to use python for this, since

14 only needs the interface to be written. It would also be alot simpler
15 than writing it in C and imbedding python :)
