Looks good!  I'll be eagerly awaiting the 3.0 ebuilds.

I took a brief look at them today.  What is the point of having 
agrat and agvic ebuilds?  rat 4.2.5 is in portage already and we 
could poke at http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=81890 to get 
vic accepted too.  Does AG3 require particular versions or are 
patches applied that aren't in the upstream version?
