6 Thanks for opening a spot to voice our opinions within reasonable limits
7 and without deadlocked discussions.
9 To make it brief, I'd very much prefer 3c[0] for the reasons provided by
10 others before:
11 - From what I can see, it provides for all requirements set out by g55.
12 - There is a backwards-compatible way to implement it.
13 - It does not expose any more internal metadata than current ebuilds do.
14 - I see no rush to implement new EAPI features that require drastic
15 changes enabled by 1*.
16 - It provides a constant face for Gentoo, aka we're the guys and gals
17 using the ".ebuild" format.

22 [0] Although not with a fixed line limit, but with a strict way to find
23 it, i.e. the first occurence of #?\s*EAPI=["']?([a-zA-Z0-9._]+)["']?
24 or similar.
