Default EAPI usage in main tree

Hash: SHA1

I would like to upgrade tree-wide policy for EAPI usage in main tree.
Currently we say that developers can use any named version they wish or
find sufficient.
I would on other hand like to have all ebuilds to use Latest EAPI
version possible (given the eclasses support it [hint hint maintainers
of eclasses should always try to support latest :P]) with expection for
base-system or more specialy depgraph for portage that needs to be
EAPI0. [[ And here we need to find out some upgrade proccess that would
work for everyone so we could somehow migrate them too ]]

With this usually new developers should be aware only of latest EAPI and
wont need to memorize what which EAPI support. Heck even I sometimes
forget what i can do with some version and whatnot.

Winner for being PITA in this race is python.eclass that HAS completely
different behavior based on EAPI version used...
