I use Gentoo, as you well know from every other time the "anyone who ever touches any other distribution is a traitor and should go away and never do anything with Gentoo again" line has been tried. I care because it's a huge waste of everyone's time that's all happened because one developer refused to admit that he was in effect advocating the use of a flag in the same category as -ffast-math, even when shown how it would break correct code.

Exherbo doesn't and never has used Gentoo ebuilds. Again, as you know fine well. -- Ciaran McCreesh
