9 The question is then, what features do people want there?
11 I've seen a few things mentioned, but I presume there are two
12 restrictions -
13 1) feature needs to be reasonably useful to enough people
14 2) feature needs to be implementable in a short enough timeframe
16 So EAPI 2 is not "everything shiny", but a small iterative improvement
17 to EAPI 1.
19 Suggest features then and let's discuss!
