I think we also need to know:
How many EAPI's do we have now?
Where is the detailed definition of those EAPI's?
How can we produce a new EAPI?
IMO, we can not have more than two EAPI's simultaneously.
The only situation in which we can have two EAPI is in the transition period
of those two EAPI's. And we should set a time constraint on the transition.
Other than that we can only have one working EAPI which all package managers
Otherwise, I think we may be risking forking the portage tree.
