It's quite likely that if you are currently on a system with Portage
that does not understand EAPI 1 there's so many obstacles along the
upgrade path that a clean install makes more sense. Maybe someone is
willing to test this so that we actually know if there is an upgrade
path from EAPI 0 available any more.
