Subject: [gentoo-portage-dev] PATCH emerge --metadata and typo fix

1 Hola...
2 basically... got ticked off and knocked the --metadata code down to
3 absolute explicit settings, resetting category, dumping
4 PORTDIR_OVERLAY, and ignoring failures on cache cleansing.
6 The important thing is transfering the metadata; cache cleansing is
7 good (very good imo), but it's not worthy of a full tb from where I
8 sit, since it's a greater annoyance to users to lack the pregenerated
9 metadata, vs having extra files sitting around.
11 Either way... this should eliminate pretty much any remaining horkages
12 in it.
14 That and a typo in the "you're trying to unmerge a pkg that is in
15 system set" is fixed.
17 Patch has been tested by a couple of people, looking for a few more
18 testers; should be pretty much golden, but would like people to check
19 this over so that any remaining --metadata horkages disappear.
