i implemented eclass checking for some of the most common ones in the tree,
but Zac didn't particularly care for the maintaining of lists of functions
used by eclasses directly in repoman (due to the concern of them getting out
so the proposal is to utilize the existing eclass documentation markers to
extract the complete list of functions provided by an eclass. the upside is
the metadata stays current, and we can scale better to all eclasses w/out
requiring manual intervention. the downside is that if people don't properly
document their eclasses, repoman might throw false positives (warnings, not
errors) about unused eclasses being inherited, and will miss throwing errors
when functions are used but the respective eclasses aren't inherited.
however, i think that's a good hammer to throw at eclass maintainers to keep
their documentation up-to-date and accurate. any other opinions/feedback ?
