6 Which means it doesn't have to be GUI, right? That makes the task much
7 simpler.
9 It would be something like automating stage4, meaning storing the build
10 settings (/etc/make.conf), the list of packages
11 (/var/lib/portage/world)... and kicking off the install in one step. Or
12 something like that.
14 Which also means we can do the above step by step. A graphical installer
15 which does the half of installation and stops is useless. But a tool
16 that speeds up the manual installation by half is very useful.
