I wouldn't say I'd have misgivings over it. There was a moment in time that I was hopeful that it was possible... but packaging is a very difficult inertia to get over...and you have to pick your battles.
But conary is really really interesting and I continue to think its not really had its day in the sun just yet. I'm actually more surprised that Google didn't adopt it over the portage system when moving away from traditional packaging when it revamped its ChromeOS development.
I think for conary to really have its day its going to take a greenfield consumer oriented development project to really put it front and center in people's attention. ChromeOS could have been that project, but other opportunities will arise at some point.
