Also, if I remember correctly, Tommy asked for this some months ago, you
asked for what he sent some days ago and now you require more and more
work to delay things to be implemented. I also don't understand why
Gentoo is forced to stick with old ways of doing things until new EAPI
is approved while Exherbo is free to implement and use things like that
special way of handling DEPENDENCIES without waiting for any EAPI to be
accepted... or maybe I am wrong and people is able to use any PM manager
compliant with EAPI on exherbo without issues?
