4 Or you could simply use squashfs + aufs/unionfs to host your portage
5 tree, see http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-465367.html.
6 This way you can still access files from the previous portage tree
7 after syncing without any problems (i.e. without unpacking any backup).
8 Moreover, since the portage tree will get recompressed on shutdown
9 anyway, it does not cost additional disk operations to keep
10 backups for as many revisisions as you want to.
