It would be nice to have an ebuild for net-misc/mimms-3.2.1 to replace net-misc/mmsclient which has been masked for removal by bug #284747.
I'll attach an ebuild.

This ebuild is pretty straight-forward, as python distutils does it all.
Don't have a mms:// stream at hand just now to try it out, but I guess it should. Installed all right, and seems functional at least up to command line help display. Will certainly try it for real next time I encounter such a stream.
Hello, The Gentoo Team would like to firstly thank you for your ebuild
submission. We also apologize for not being able to accommodate you in a timely
manner. There are simply too many new packages.
Allow me to use this opportunity to introduce you to Gentoo Sunrise. The
sunrise overlay is a overlay for Gentoo which we allow trusted users to
commit to and all users can have ebuilds reviewed by Gentoo devs for entry
into the overlay. So, the sunrise team is suggesting that you look into this
and submit your ebuild to the overlay where even *you* can commit to. =)

Committed with some improvements. Should appear soon (once it got reviewed) at
Given the fact that bug #284747 has mmsclient scheduled for removal 2009-12-09, and furthermore that mmsclient is masked right now and people are probably looking for a replacement right now, I'd hope this makes it into the main portage tree soon.
the ebuild is currently in sunrise, but uses deprecated EAPI/python eclass (quite some warnings)
At least using this :
and doing the conversion of this directive
do the trick
The ebuild in sunrise was outdated and unmaintained, so it got removed.
