| And ebuilds are irrelevant without portage. Point?
Portage is considerably less work than the tree. Saving as much effort
as possible from an ebuild perspective should be a major consideration,
even if it makes the portage side more complicated. Think of how all
the ebuild-related problems are going to be solved first. Don't leave
it as an afterthought.

The sensible place to start experimenting is by adapting existing
ebuilds and tinkering with ebuild.sh, not by adding something which may
or may not end up being relevant to portage proper.
