I'm aware of that. My point is that I think there are many scenarios in which EAPI-4 + python.eclass can work, especially if it's used only for few things in cases like www-client/chromium Because the python team takes _ages_ to do the transition that is holding back many other packages, because they've made python.eclass overly complex and now try to make it perfect, I'd just like to get an "OK" to enable EAPI-4 for that eclass. Please note that it's still up to dependent packages which EAPI they use. If they break python.eclass with EAPI-4 they shouldn't update to that EAPI. However, if there are packages using python.eclass that could work fine with EAPI-4, it shouldn't be blocking them for *ages*
