[paludis-user] mktemp blocking problem with paludis

I just wanted to inform you that paludis has a small problem with the new 
coreutils (6.10) blocking sys-apps/mktemp (because /bin/mktemp is now 
provided by coreutils). When mktemp is uninstalled to resolve the block, 
paludis fails to install the new coreutils, because it seems to need mktemp 
for applying the patches.

However, I've found two workarounds for this:

1) copy /bin/mktemp to a save place prior to deinstallation and copy it back 
afterwards (it will be overwritten with the coreutils version), or

2) Use emerge to update coreutils.
