Let's continue this on the PMS list.

* user patches

* EAPI parsing

* the things that were left out of 4:

+ slot operator deps

+ profile IUSE

* No -j1 for src_test

* Remove deprecated stuff

* Zero or one REQUIRED_USE operator

These might be cheap now?

* New bash version

* Get a versionator replacement into the PM

Could:

be handled also?

Why are we trying to make PM a brick instead of keeping stuff modular?
What does the eclass lack which could be provided by PM?

Because trying to parse version formats correctly in bash is a huge
pain, and versionator doesn't get it right (never mind that the rules
were different when versionator was written).

What's changed from 2006 in version handling?

The ordering rules, the handling of zeroes and the behaviour of
suffixes.
