what i would like to see? support for s6 init and s6-rc, easy multiarch support like Exherbo, multilib, glibc and musl choice, not to depend on python for example Paludis is written in c++ , have eselect or something similar, to have binaries as well as easy been able to compile packages like freebsd. able to choose between alsa pipewire, and oss v4 for sound.
something better than depclean.
able to select in case of binaries if want depency resolution or not, automatic chroot mount options
(in case went without multilib support good container for Amd Gpus too not only for Nvidia like Funtoo linux.) and not change from one day to another like Funtoo did, hey!! we are no longer multilib.
ncurses options for compiling, ncurses for binaries install select and deselect like in Slackware.
Each program resides in its own directory like Gobolinux.
