Some relative timing of events may be interesting here:
   12 May 2007   bash-3.2_p15 stable on major architectures.
   19 Aug 2008   python-2.3.6-r6 removed, which was the last ebuild
                 of Python with EAPI 0.

So the upgrade path for EAPI 0 systems is broken anyway, for a
different reason.

And if we stay at bash-3.0, then we should probably add its ebuild to
the tree again, in order to ease compatibility testing. It was removed
half a year ago.
