If most of us are to be advised to use only stage 3 for installation, that will remove one of the main advantages of Gentoo, namely having everything compiled on the machine it's running on. What advice will be offered on remerging first the toolkit, then the system packages and then the world files? Is maguire's emwrap script to be promoted?
