Looks like you have now opted to use Brian's comment as a kind of
"shield" of similar and discuss only about multilib, even when this
thread was more general and we were talking to the problems shown in
recent discussions (from forcing rebuilds issue, optional deps problems
to some trivial questions like know where we can see what things are
being worked out for eapi5). 

In all that discussions there were a clear tendency to always say "it's
fine the way it's", even when a lot of people didn't even know what
things were going to be included in eapi5, or discuss for days about the
forcing rebuilds issue (with the, now classical, glib vs dbus-glib/g-i
issue) to finally still tell people "we still didn't fully know what the
problem was". I remember that, just after Brian and Zac's comments about
trying to clarify things a bit on that thread and reach a solution, your
reply to them was that we were missing a brilliant opportunity to
"encourage developers put in a bit more work to save users a huge amount
of pain here". Personally, I see a clear difference about their way to
show their disagreement and yours.

Of course, I know how this thread will end: once we decide to stop
replying (or anybody asks us to stop) as you seem to find this happy or
so and, of course, you will always say the last word, the problem will
get stalled until three months later somebody else rises the problem
again letting you to show again that "always rejecting position" you
seem to like.
