I've overheard Arfrever discussing a similar approach in funtoo's irc
channel, where the ebuild would set a variable prior to inherit if it
wants to use a specific eclass API. For the python eclass, he's planning
to have ebuilds set the PYTHON_ECLASS_API variable to use the new API.
When the variable is unset, the eclass will default to the older API.
