    repoman: deprecate netsurf.eclass.
    While investigating bug 489542, it became clear that the netsurf
    eclass is deprecated in spirit if not in fact. All of the newer
    netsurf ebuilds use a custom function loaded from a script that is
    shipped in netsurf-buildsystem's $FILESDIR to do (some of) what the
    eclass used to do. That function probably does belong in an eclass,
    but at this point, we should throw this thing out and start from
    By deprecating the eclass, we make sure that no one else inherits it
    during the time it takes to purge the two remaining consumers. Then,
    once those are gone, the build system script magic can be put back
    into an eclass, and its consumers updated one-at-a-time.

I had patches for this, but the eclass is dead as soon as bug 728478 is addressed. No point in fixing it now.
