Hm, remove IMAGE. Anything else?

Given the long time it's been in limbo I doubt that this will be a quick feature. (But I'll be glad if you convince me of the opposite.) Other cheap stuff: * Mandate GNU find (bug 384157) * Add an EBUILD_PHASE_FUNC variable (bug 390765) * usex: new "use" type helper (bug 382963) * econf: append --disable-silent-rules (bug 379497) Ulrich
