We voted in the last council meeting that we won't put any additional
features into EAPI 3. So I think that you need good arguments if you
want us to revise that decision.

This is already included, see again December council meeting.
The only feature that I think is worth reconsidering:
4) Support for unpacking .xz files
It's an extension, therefore backwards compatible, and zmedico has
already included it in Portage (EAPI=3_pre2 has it).
Should we have a vote per e-mail about the above (1, 2, and 4)?
I think we should finalise the EAPI 3 feature list now and don't
reiterate it at the next council meeting.
