dev-python/uuid installs uuid module to site-packages directory. uuid module has been included in Python standard library (in dev-lang/python) since 2.5. http://pypi.python.org/pypi/uuid suggests that uuid is no longer maintained outside Python standard library. uuid module installed by dev-python/uuid is out-of-date and, in Python >=2.5, it is even *never* used.
$ python -c 'import sys; print(sys.path)'
['', '/usr/lib64/python26.zip', '/usr/lib64/python2.6', '/usr/lib64/python2.6/plat-linux2', '/usr/lib64/python2.6/lib-tk', '/usr/lib64/python2.6/lib-old', '/usr/lib64/python2.6/lib-dynload', '/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages', '/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/FontTools', '/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/Numeric', '/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/PIL', '/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/gtk-2.0', '/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/wx-2.8-gtk2-unicode', '/usr/lib64/portage/pym']
As you can see /usr/lib64/python2.6 is before /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages, so /usr/lib64/python2.6/uuid.py is always used instead of /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/uuid.py.
uuid.py isn't available in Python 2.4, but this slot is deprecated and you don't need to support installation of your packages for Python 2.4. Please update dependencies to require Python >=2.5. You can set NEED_PYTHON="2.5" before 'inherit ...' line.
You probably included dependency on dev-python/uuid in net-misc/orbited-0.7.9 only because dev-python/stomper requires separate uuid package. This useless dependency can be easily removed by the attached patch.
Created attachment 202683 [details, diff]
bumped and fixed, thanks.
also, please feel free to remove the uuid package when you are happy.

OK. I have masked dev-python/uuid.
