13 One potential compromise- tag in a section in pms about "nonstandard
14 eapis" and throw in some links to places folks can look. That general
15 approach should provide a way to retire standardized EAPIs from the
16 doc also- same thing "go look here".
18 Aside from that, the 'first' bit is inaccurate- prefix actually was
19 first (almost since their inception they relied on it).
21 Either way, +1 for punting it. Someone earlier labeled it as a "latex
22 obfuscator"- that pretty much nails my views/reasoning for wanting it
23 gone.
25 Tt's a bit like c source, ones annoyance grows proportional to the
26 invasiveness of ifdefs.
