So noone feels omitted, the first question with 'new' Python eclasses -
does 'just' python-distutils-ng suit us, or do we need to split out
a more basic eclass of some sort?
My opinion here: python-distutils-ng itself could be fine, because:
1) packages which don't support multiple Python ABIs probably don't
need anything like our USEflags or other stuff that -ng provides --
they're as good with the old python.eclass;
2) packages which use distutils are fine with p-d-ng;
3) packages which are built for multiple Python ABIs yet do not use
distutils need to declare python_compile() and stuff anyway. And if we
do, then p-d-ng is basically python-ng.
What're your thoughts?
