I know about distutils.eclass: If an ebuild does just inherit it and does not define anything
special, it will add "dev-lang/python" to the dependency tree, which will pull in python-3*, also
noone knows, if it is requested, supported or will even work there (e.g. dev-util/protobuf does pull
in python-3*, also i dont see any marks, that it does support python-3*).
