Yes, it's feasible. As a consequence, we may get some complaints from users who haven't upgraded during the last six months. For users like these, we could take a snapshot of the tree before the EAPI is bumped, and archive it so they can use it to update their package manager to a version that supports the new EAPI. -- Thanks, Zac
