app-portage/esearch-0.7.1 explicitly requires python compiled with 
readline.  Apple doesn't do this for us, hence portage wants to pull 
python for users that use esearch.  Unfortunately for us esearch has 
been marked unstable when it was created, so I decided to mask it in the 
macos profile.

A user in IRC encountered this problem when updating world using 
~ppc-macos.  I expect all upcoming versions of esearch to require 
readline in esearch, hence I checked this patch in:

  # this version of nano can't save files on Mac OS X - see bug 89040
+# the newest esearch requires python with readline, which is not what
