I think you are slightly misreading his intent (or I am misreading
it). I believe Ciaran is talking about "what gentoo should put in
make.defaults such that the user experience doesn't totally suck for
this new EAPI3 thing" and provided some ideas. I'm pretty sure
whether or not PM foo has implemented these things is a moot point as
far as this thread is concerned.
