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

28 Exherbo doesn't and never has used Gentoo ebuilds. Again, as you know
29 fine well.
