Uhm, this proposal is exactly in line with dozens of others that have been made for EAPI 5. It's simple, low impact and easy to understand. Please explain for everyone's benefit how you think this proposal is in any way different to the EBUILD_PHASE_FUNC proposal, or the usex proposal, or the silent rules proposal.

It treats -r300 as being newer than -r200, and so will treat "the gtk3 version" or "the jruby version" as being newer versions of "the gtk2 version" or "the ruby 1.8 version", just as it tries to bring in a newer GCC and so on. -- Ciaran McCreesh
