 Hi, all.
 I agree, that it's not a paludis bug.
 I like paludis for it's strict following standarts.

 But I'm a novice developer and I can't ask Daniel Robbins to change his
 opinion
 about modular package.mask. And also I agree with him, that it's not a bad
 idea
 and can possibly be included in future versions of PMS (I just don't see,
 why
 modular package.mask is bad).

 To deal with this situation as I can, I wrote simple workaround for
 paludis (a
 hook script), that makes it work with funtoo portage tree by switching it
 to
 modular before syncing, and back to singular after it.
 I hope it will be useful and so publish it here.
