We wouldn't gain much by this, because we still have to go through all
ebuilds using ebeep and epause and change them to EAPI 3.
This would be at least the same amount of work as removing the ebeep
and epause calls from all ebuilds. Why don't we do this instead and
leave the eclass as it is?
There are already enough differences between EAPIs for devs to learn,
and IMHO we shouldn't introduce additional complications such as EAPI
dependent eclass behaviour (except where necessary, e.g. src_prepare).
