The patch works much like the one given in #317337, and I think the one in #317337 looks more complete. however #317337 is marked as duplicate of #201499 . In the #201499 thread they actually made a nice proposal to introduce a new dependency system that uses dependency labels . I'm currently planning on implementing it since it looks to be the preferred draft EAPI.
What I'm concerning is that I don't have the confidence I'm able to hack portage to support the new system. The dependency handling code in portage uses complicated algorithm and is lack of document. I'm turning to paludis to see if it's easier to be modified to fit our purpose.
