Umm, ok... I will wait for the 7.21 released[1] and I will try to make the 
change from bin/opera to bin/linux-opera (include ~/.linux-opera and 
share/linux-opera/).. So, can you get the www/linux-opera and www/opera 
out of your mega-PR? If you have any suggest, just let me know.

[1] 7.21 should be release sometime soon like one to two week(s) or even 
by tomorrow; it's depend.
