not really ... you have one official manager and QA tests with that

why do we have to support it ?  this seems like a perfectly good application 
of EAPI that the portage peeps keep talking about

if you have a hard dcument of what it means to be compatible with EAPI=0, then 
i see no reason to block any package manager that conforms to it

whatever the latest EAPI version that the official package manager (portage is 
the current official one) supports is what the tree must conform to
