If you have time to do a proper change analysis between 1.12.7 and the latest upstream version, the proxy maintainer project  may help to get an updated ebuild of yours into the main tree. Please consider that option - your help is welcome.

would love to, but have no idea what that means. i can barely read config files. i would also suggest to not use the tarball but the git master branch (?) since upstream is quite active but doesnt seem to follow a predictable release cycle.
2.0.3 added to CVS.
