Hm, remove IMAGE. Anything else?

No objections from me to all of the above.

Too early, IMHO. Let's implement EAPI parsing first, then wait for

Given the long time it's been in limbo I doubt that this will be a

Other cheap stuff:
* Mandate GNU find (bug 384157)
* Add an EBUILD_PHASE_FUNC variable (bug 390765)
* usex: new "use" type helper (bug 382963)
* econf: append --disable-silent-rules (bug 379497)
