https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=210077 <--- This is why it's
taking so long, there are still MANY bugs that should really be fixed.
Part of why it's taking so long for those bugs to be fixed is because
programmatic sets and preserve-libs aren't a priority, but things like
supporting new EAPIs and such are a far bigger priority.
