No, you are looking at my view backwards.

Is EAPI major enough to warrant going to 1.4?  I don't know.  

If it is not, then it should either go or not go in 1.3.x depending on
what we want and 2.0 should be what we work at.

If it is major enough to warrent going to 1.4, then that implies that
there is some requirement for a significant beta cycle, etc.  If adding
EAPI requires such a thing (and traditional beta cycles have been at the
very minimum a few months) then maybe it is really a bit much to be adding
at this time.

So what I'm saying is that either it is big enough that it shouldn't go
into a near-term release (ie. 1.3.x or 1.4) or it is small enough that it
can, which means it is appropriate in a 1.3.x.
