12 I'm well aware of this. The features listed at the wiki page are the
13 ones that a) have been discussed, e.g. in the -dev ML, and where (by
14 my subjective judgement) there is consensus that they belong in the
15 next EAPI, b) where we have at least a rough idea how the
16 specification should look like, and c) that can be implemented in
17 finite time.

19 Feel free to lobby for any of the 52 additional features if you
20 believe that it is missing. (Preferably, patches for PMS and for
21 Portage should be provided. ;-)
