7 While I like it for ease of rapid development, conceptually, this
8 worries me.
10 Presently, if you add a new patch, you need to edit an ebuild, which
11 provides a strong hint that you might need to revbump the ebuild per
12 development best practices:
15 If this eclass was used, there would no longer be revbumps, and you
16 could not revert to the old version simply by reinstalling the prior
17 version.
19 Is there a way we can get the best of both worlds?
