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
