The thing is, on "stable" archs, we've got both stable and unstable users on any given profile. So, eventually it seems like we'll want something like a use.stable file in order to teak the default python_targets_* flags for stable users, as suggested here: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=415575#c5 -- Thanks, Zac
