Why?  Presumably they're doing it by writing programs that do their own
parsing and executing, which means they'll need a maintainer just for
that program and they'll have to go through a few iterations to get the
initial bugs out, and then people will have to learn how to use the
different-yet-again language that goes with it.  Why not rely on a
prebuilt parser that devs already have to know to look after ebuilds?

I'm happy to accept that there might be some very good reasons
(respawning a shell for each script is time consuming/expensive?), but
without describing what those reasons are, it's not a direction we
should just be following blindly...
