no ... that sort of defeats the whole reason that drove this work. we don't
want the mere fact that one eclass inherits another to imply that it's part of
that eclasses guaranteed API. a lot of eclasses inherit eutils, but i don't
think any of them should be guaranteeing that inherit which means ebuilds need
to include it themselves if they use functions from it (like epatch).
there are a cases with split up or hierarchical eclasses (java, mysql, qt,
php, python, xorg come to mind) where the entry point might vary, but they all
share core eclasses that largely should not be inherited by the end ebuild.
maybe a new eclass-level keyword @INHERITED-API ? it takes a space delimited
list of eclasses that are guaranteed by the API. so in distutils.eclass, we'd
# @INHERITED-API: python
and repoman would use this to build a tree of implicit funcs to allow w/out a
signature.asc (This is a digitally signed message part.)
