Note that the current bazel ebuild uses the eclass. So if that's not
supported by anyone... Albeit seems(?) to only be for bazel_get_flags
so it should be easy to make it go standalone.

Also a virtual for -bin won't matter much if it's not intended for
use with Gentoo packaging. Users don't overly need to go through a
virtual and can just emerge bazel{,-bin} as wanted.

For all I care it could be reduced to a bin-only package if that's
easier and sufficient, not that I use bazel myself for anything to
have much of an opinion here.

That aside, bazel does sound far less bad than keeping tensorflow.
