Daniel Robbins created a new meta-tool to replace eselect because eselect has a couple of design issues. It requires extensions to be written as shell scripts, which is present in base a big limitation. With the advent of Funtoo's modular profile system, {{c|eselect profile}} was becoming cumbersome to use, and I needed to make the tool faster and in every stage3more feature-rich.
