Makes you getting to have to do the two stage source again AND you get 
another non obvious condition "Should I bump the eapi internally or the 
filename?"

The main point again what is proposed in glep-55 is it that isn't 
invasive and non-transparent to users and developers.

As stated in the analysis, the user side is already covered by the fact 
users use the cache, the developer side would require a two stage 
sourcing when committing to remain transparent.

What we need to balance is if the invasive proposal is simpler than 
having a two stage sourcing done.
