* 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.

* 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.
