I'm not thinking about my self. I've created patch to unbundle isa-l
from sheepdog and I'm maintainig ebuild (Gentoo's package) of isa-l for
my own purposes. I'm thinking what to do to make sheepdog cleaner (in
meaning of code), easier to maintain (sheepdog also doesn't have too
many maintainers). Bundled libraries is rather not welcome by
maintainers of ports. It's better to add new pacakge to OS then isa-l
can be used by other users (and software).
