<grin> Once again: First, there is only one package which will have this
problem (Ben's Apache-SSL) and it will have it only _ONCE_, second one
doesn't need plenty of time to make the required changes (it's a matter
of one afternoon), third even Ben said it's not such a great problem
for him and forth, if all should fail for Apache-SSL I also volunteered
to help out, too. Additionally EAPI for non-EAPI users cannot break
anything, because the whole stuff is 100% #ifdef'ed and fully optional
and disabled per default. So I'm really wondering about the repeated
strong arguments for such a harmless issue... hmm.... very confusing.
