Working targets. USE_PYTHON is junk. What python.eclass does now with
ABIs is a PITA, and requires manually providing a lot of redudant
information (namely, RESTRICT_PYTHON_ABIS).
Right now, each ebuild has to provide the same information in
PYTHON_DEPEND and RESTRICT_PYTHON_ABIS. Moreover, if an ebuild
supports, say, py3 and its dependency doesn't, the ebuild has to
restrict py3 too.
I'd like to see that fixed somehow. I'd like to set a single supported
Python version information in an ebuild, and let the dependency
resolver handle everything else.
