+1. Either we use EAPIs with some thinking or just drop that concept
and move on to something else.

There is a number of features waiting for new EAPI, and noone yet even
considered them. But when it comes to marginal feature which many of
devs don't even accept, it's enough to quickly release a new EAPI which
most of the tree won't support.
