The only issue that has been raised is that the eclass will die if
python_pkg_setup is not called from the ebuild. This can happen either
implicitly (the function is exported) or explicitly (by calling it from
pkg_setup).

I haven't gotten a very good explanation as to why this is necessary
from Arfrever. He has given some very short, non-informative
explanations like "Jython requires it".

Puzzling it out myself takes quite a bit of brain power, given the
complexity of the eclass. There may in fact be no reason for it at all.
Either way, somebody needs to actually understand it.

Other than that issue, I think we really just need to do some testing.
Despite there being a large number of people in the python herd, there
aren't many who actually have the time to do this.

It would be helpful if folks could brain storm a list of python related
packages to test under EAPI 4. I may have some time over the next few
weekends to work on this.
