The packages are stuck on py3.6 which means they will be pain once we switch to 3.7. Please test them on 3.7 *and* 3.8 (so we don't to revisit this in a few months), and update PYTHON_COMPAT appropriately. If it doesn't work, please either fix it, remove Python or issue last rites. Please consider this urgent.

media-gfx/blender: Version bump to 2.83.4
Blender 2.83.4 works with python 3.7. It may compile with 3.8, but
blender only supports 3.7 officially as it follows the VFX Reference
Platform to ensure that user add ons are not broken in the process.
They plan to introduce 3.8 support in 2021.
New features include a new interface, the realtime eevee renderer,
and importing openvdb files created by other packages among others.
Game engine and Blender Player were removed in 2.80.
Bug fixes in this version are alembic support, upstream fixes for
opencollada, requiring openjpeg:2 to avoid security issues, and
mimeinfo cache is correctly updated. Where these issues remain in
blender 2.79b, the bug is linked but should be closed only when
blender 2.79b is removed.
On my system the docs do not currently compile,
and the polyfill2d test still fails like 2.79b.
Blender 2.83 support for draco, embree, oidn, usd and openxr is not yet
implemented pending development of ebuilds for these packages.

Python 3.8 for this is a bit complicated but I'm going to be keeping an eye on it.
