Differences between Sourcemage and Gentoo

Thanks to ferringb's blog post
(http://dev.gentoo.org/~ferringb/blog/archives/2005-03.html#e2005-03-14T18_03_31.txt"),
I just finished reading the page on the Sourcemage wiki that describes the
differences
between Sourcemage and Gentoo. It certainly makes for interesting
reading. I opened a bug
("http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1184") almost exactly
three years ago suggesting that we should implement some of the better ideas
from Sorcerer Linux, some of which are still lacking in portage. It's quite
clear that Sorcerer and its decendants have some quite good ideas.
It seems a shame that the Sourcemage Gentoo diffs page seems to be a bit
biased, since I would be very interested in an objective comparison of the
distros.
