World changes in 0.26.0_alpha13

Before 0.26.0_alpha13, every installed package repository had its own individual world set handling code. Now instead there is a single global world file maintained by the environment.

If you are using the Portage configuration format, /var/lib/portage/world will continue to be used, and there is no need to change anything.

If you are using the Paludis configuration format, you must specify the world key in general.conf. If this key is not specified, no file will be written to for world updates.

To ease the upgrade, any world key explicitly specified for a VDB repository will continue to be used for reading but not writing.
