webapp-config was originally designed as a standalone, distribution independent, multi-os tool (Windows support being a priority) that would operate largely independently of the package manager. It just happened to have been developed on Gentoo first. In the early days it would get up to all kinds of crazy stuff like trying to call 'emerge -C' from within pkg_postinst of an ebuild... Unfortunately, in those days, bypassing Portage was considered easier than extending it. -- Ciaran McCreesh
