*sigh*. Some people.
Oh well, never did get round to completing my project anyway so no big loss. Thanks for at least trying to check it out (or in, depending on which way round you look at it).
Feel free to contribute more or even maintain your ebuilds in the gentoo user overlay project ( http://gentoo-sunrise.org/ ), contributions are always welcome :)
