People will not "hate you" - if the portage with EAPI4 is in ~arch, you
can have PHP w/EAPI4 in ~arch, even on zero-day of release. Likewise
with stable tree. It does not matter when council "approves" EAPI4, it
matters when portage has the implementation and is released..
The caveat is with @system packages, especially bash/python/portage itself.
