My opinion is very similar to what Brian Harring said on that bug: some
Python API would be much better than still pretty vague return code
(what would you do with it?).
- I emerge a list of packages, some unstable dependencies are required;
allow me to get a list of those package atoms
- same as above, but return list of USE flags adjustments required
- package blocks
- unsatisfied USE flag constraints
... and so on. I think it can start very simple and small, and be
extended as needed.
