Very nice, any chance that also includes generated binaries? I make binaries for other systems to merge allot (binpkg). It sucks to have them clobbered with different USE flags. I always wanted to be able to keep the various binaries with different USE flags. Like some systems are hardened others not, so recompile gcc vs having 2. Not sure if that is a step in that direction, but it is a cool feature just the same. Allows for further testing. -- William L. Thomson Jr.
