If that were true, which it isn't, then by Council decision pkgcore
should have been package.masked.

No, it leaves me writing documents used by Portage, Pkgcore, Paludis
and at least two more independent under-development third party package
management libraries.

This thread is necessary for Portage support for EAPI 3, which is being
worked on. It also has considerable developer impact, since depending
upon the decisions made, certain existing conventions may no longer
apply to EAPI 3 things.

Given that your stated intention is for "Paludis to fail", and that
"opposing [me] and everything [I] do was an initiative [you] started
only after careful consideration", I'll kindly ask you to stop randomly
jumping out and flinging turds, since it adds nothing to the discussion
at hand and only serves to make it harder for Gentoo to function as a
community.
