1 with the previously proposed/accepted GLEP 27 stalled, i'm looking into
2 mitigating the current suckiness of enew{user,group}/egetent. the first step
3 is simple: let's split these funcs out of eutils.eclass and into a dedicated
4 eclass. this makes it trivial for people externally to override the
5 functionality and hook into whatever craziness they want.
7 eutils.eclass will inherit this new eclass directly (for the foreseeable
8 future), so there's no need for tree-wide update bonanzas.
10 suggested name: euser.eclass
