Anything you do in Gentoo can be changed, undone, redone. Apart from rm -fR / perhaps.

I think the NSA knows how to undo that if you don't write on the disk afterward.

Some things are difficult to the point of being relatively impractical. Two examples come to mind:
  1. Switching from a 32-bit system to a 64-bit system or vice versa.
  2. Downgrading glibc.

@Tony0945

You can do that at home, too. Not worth to restore Gentoo install this way, IMHO. :P

@John,

you can add switching from no-multilib to multilib. Although it can be done.
