You can do it now w/out waiting on ABI dependencies- I'm not saying
the dependencies would be pretty, but it's doable to get abi level
depdencies per slotting via expanding out the use combinations.
Note that's a step beyond what's in place now- converting over to the
ruby abuse of USE_EXPAND hands over better control to users now w/ the
same dep gurantees.
So... yeah, it's not reliant on EAPI. An EAPI extension *would* make
it easier, but it's not required to do it (especially since the deps
are already autogenerated to a decent degree).
