* IMPLICIT_IUSE Finally allow to write legal ebuilds respecting Prefix wish to not have to add prefix to IUSE. A solution was proposed and approved by council. https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=366555 * EJOBS Long standing wish. MAKEOPTS parsing for getting a job value is error prone as bug reports do prove. http://archives.gentoo.org/gentoo-dev/msg_750e33f68b16d971dff1f40dd9145e56.xml * doheader thought myself before this should be available for consistency. https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=21310 * standard input for new* / here* helper also rather cheap to implement. https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=263565 Ralph
