  Just as MichaƂ has pointed it, it is not.

  Why? 90% of users just use latest Python available, i.e. 2.7 and 3.2 at  
the moment, and don't really care about actual versions.
python.eclass handles this smoothly, probably using eselect'ed versions.  
Only few people (like me) set USE_PYTHON to suit their needs. Why new  
eclass cannot behave in a similar way? Where's the profit? There's open  
bug already: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=415575
