I'm in favour of this. As an upstream developer of phpMyAdmin, we've
used this procedure for a long time, using cvs2cl for this purpose (see
my name in the cvs2cl contributers list as well ;-).

We'd need to add a bit of code to put in the new ebuild extra stuff,
but other than that, it should work out of the box.
