I'd thought that the new eclass was designed to ensure that if you asked
for USE="python" it was built for as many different python ABIs as was
installed on your system (so python2 and python3 if they're both
installed). I believe it's possible to ask the eclass which ABIs are
installed, and ask for the either in-use or highest versions of those.
If they're not mutually exclusive, and if vim won't break if they go
away, then why should the user choose which ones to enable and disable?
Why not just get them to say whether they want python support or not,
and try to accomodate them for as many python versions as
I realize there may be some controversy surrounding the new python
eclass, however that does seem to be how most python packages work these
days, so I'd say it's better to keep everything working the same way.
