A small bug in repoman turned up when testing the EAPI=5 profiles, and 
therefore we will wait for the next stable portage version before the 10.0 
profiles are deprecated. So, another 3-4 weeks to go maybe.

[The only alternative would be to require all devs to run at least ~arch 
portage, since the bug only affects repoman, not emerge.]
