Well, I don't know all the details, since in the end I just started
adding all ubuntu patches for certain packages to the Gentoo ebuilds...

But that would indeed be an interesting exercise. Also since the newer
indicators need some patching due to a stronger integration with upstart
and the ubuntu phone platform.

I'm currently busy finishing my PhD thesis, but next month I should have
