As I mentioned on IRC, I think this isn't a very general use case (given the existence of --resume, --keep-going, etc.) so code to accomplish it would be better put into a custom portage bashrc than into portage proper. ISTR that you could no longer resume for some reason. Perhaps what you really wanted was a way to save the resume list across multiple emerges? -- Thanks, Donnie Donnie Berkholz Developer, Gentoo Linux Blog: http://dberkholz.wordpress.com
