[PLUG] Source Distro Recommendation

I had been an avid Gentoo user, who then switched to Funtoo.   I gave up on 
the Gentoo world in resigned disappointment due to the poor stability (even in 
the "stable" version), and moved back to pure Debian.  (With Gentoo developers 
up to their hips in "udev" forking, I expect this instability to get even 
worse over the next year.)  [Sorry, Rich!]

However, my heart still yearns for a source-based distro.

I've looked at Sorcerer, SourceMage, and LunarLinux.   None of them seem as 
well developed as Gentoo/Funtoo.

Does anyone here have any experience with any of these?

My first try at Sorcerer did not go well when I couldn't get it to run in a 
VirtualBox machine.  (I'm trying the other 2 this weekend.)

I'd appreciate reports of experiences with any of these source distros.
