1) I am not opposed to pkgsrc (versus ports).  I have become neutral.
2) I am a big fan of gentoo portage (as a user, not a developer).
    I've had (almost) zero problems in the four years I have been
    using portage as a *user* of gentoo -- but I have NO insight into
    the problems a gentoo developer might face.

Are you complaining about portage wearing your developer hat, or
your user hat?
