Subject: [gentoo-pms] What is meant by "once the current phase function has returned"?

Hi,
in the description of several commands (e.g., "has_version" and
"best_version") I find the following sentence:

,----
| Ebuilds must not run any of these commands once the current phase
| function has returned.
`----

Can somebody please enlighten me what is meant by this? (The only
explanation I could think of is that the ebuild should not background
the command, but that seems very far-fetched. ;-)

Ulrich
