7 Long term, we should have an independent API backend that tools can
8 query; not rewrite our tools every time users want to use them with a
9 different package manager.
11 Yes, a side effect of not having that is that a lot of tools would need
12 to be rewritten too if we would make a sudden move to pkgcore; or at
13 least, it would mean that Portage would still need to be around to serve
14 as an API, but that would also mean it still needs to be maintained.
