emeta will likely become `equery meta' in the next release of
gentoolkit, but feel free to use it from the overlay for now.

Regarding equery, there's a "changes" option that is just waiting to
be written. Considering udept's changleog function is about 30 lines,
it should be trivial to do. If people are interested, I can handle
that. It's something I would like to have, also.

I hope to have the upgraded gentoolkit available for testing within a few weeks.
