Which brings us back to stali:
I recently thought about porting portage (written in Python) to C and
read into its source code.
Calling it a mess is a compliment, given there are almost no comments
and lots of deprecated functions.
Portage is not only an example for quite unmaintainable code, but also
for a program which as obviously been deployed with the wrong
programming language.
A core package-manager shouldn't depend on python, it should be
statically linked and _fast_.
