[Exherbo-dev] Enforcement of user config variables

For a long time Paludis has maintained a list of variables such as EAPI, SLOT 
and ROOT which must not be modified by a user in bashrc. If they change 
paludis dies.

Similarly there are a few variables that may only be changed by a user. We 
should enforce those. If an exheres tries to modify any of those paludis 
should start dying as well.

That list should certainly contain EXTRA_ECONF and EXTRA_EMAKE. Should it also 
contain MAKEOPTS? EXJOBS? Others?
