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.
