How to use sqlite support in portage?

Is this ok:
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "porthole" have been masked.
Or is there any, which is not masked?

And -- if portage is meant as main engine and porthole as it's gui,
isnt it a bit fuzzy to add speed-ups to porthole instead of portage?
If it continues like that, it may end up with someone writing
command-line tool for controlling porthole :P I think that if
application has 2 layers, one for logic and another for GUI, then it's
maybe not the best way of coding to add such kind of features to GUI
part of package. I personally would definitely try to make portage
itself support indexing and other such stuff to keep things clean. Am
i wrong? Or is it in plans to make gentoo a GUI linux with very weak
command-line support?

I think that GUI code would be *clean* if it's just a GUI!
