Currently it could be really hard to figure out what emerge did in the end, especially if --keep-going is used and re-evaluations occur, or when FEATURES=test-fail-continue is used and tests fail. Portage spits some elog messages at the end but that's far from readable.

What I'd like to see is emerge outputting a full summary of operation at the end -- i.e. after any re-evaluations necessary. I'm thinking of a *complete* package list, clearly stating:

- whether package was built, tested, installed successfully,

- optionally indicate whether any elog was spitted,

- which packages were skipped due to --keep-going.

Something looking like:

  # full success with no tests and binpkg built
  dev-foo/bar-1.2.3     build:[yes]   test:[n/a]   bpkg:[yes]   inst:[yes]
  # src_configure failure
  dev-foo/baz-1.2.3     build:[no - configure failed]
  # --keep-going skipped
  dev-foo/frob-1.2.3    skipped due to unsatisfied deps
  # src_test failure without FEATURES=test-fail-continue
  dev-bar/foo-1.2.3     build:[no - test failed]   test:[no]
  # src_test failure with FEATURES=test-fail-continue
  dev-bar/foo2-1.2.3    build:[yes]   test:[no]    bpkg:[yes]   inst:[yes]
  # file collision
  dev-bar/frzx-1.2.3    build:[yes]   test:[no]    bpkg:[yes]   inst:[no - file collision]
  # preinst failure
  dev-bar/frzp-1.2.3    build:[yes]   test:[no]    bpkg:[yes]   inst:[no - preinst failed]
  # install from binpkg
  dev-bin/zzz-1.2.3     build:[n/a]   test:[n/a]   bpkg:[n/a]   inst:[yes]
