7 Well all you'd have to do is state somewhere that you can't support the
8 cvs ebuilds. mplayer for example is rapidly developing and the cvs has
9 never failed to build for me but they don't do releases very often.
10 This is where a cvs ebuild would be great to have. With mplayer it's
11 no too great a problem to not have it under portage control as it
12 doesn't install too many files and you can always install into your
13 own directory in /usr/local but if you do that for too many software
14 packages this becomes crappy even with /etc/env.d.
