for the '/etc/init.d/driverloader' issue, we could implement a check in the 
script that prevents that the file gets overwritten if the user did 
modifications to the file. I have added it to my 'TODO' list.

In the meantime, you could instead modify the file 'scripts/rcdldr.in' in the 
DriverLoader package and put your custom init script there and then reinstall 

You could also edit the shell script '/usr/sbin/dldrconfig' and remove the 
line which modify the '/etc/init.d/driverloader' file.

Thanks your for your work on a ebuild. This will make DriverLoader easier to 
install for Gentoo users. When your work is done, you can post the ebuild on 
this mailing list so the whole DriverLoader community will be able to enjoy 
your work.
