But it was an official Gentoo project, and it was used in a repository
run by the Gentoo KDE team. Remember that EAPI support is needed to be
able to uninstall a package that was installed with a particular EAPI,
so EAPIs can't be removed even when they're no longer in use.

Ok, so we remove the conditionals and just keep it in unconditionally.
Keeping it documented hurts no-one. It also reduces the amount of work
we have to do as features that it has slowly end up in
Portage-supported EAPIs -- EAPI 3 would have taken much longer had we
had to rewrite it all from scratch.
