The difficult bits are:
* making sure you can do this without things going horribly wrong for
older package managers
* making sure metadata cache validation is right
* checking everything that uses ECLASSDIR
So from that, the complexity is in "making eclasses not be in a single
place", not in the number of places eclasses can be.
