I think this notion should be concluded before we continue debating as
to how best to implement EAPI declarations.

Is it really so fixed that ".ebuild" will only ever be bash ?

If thats the case, then G55 ( or something similar ) is practically
guaranteed as soon as we want something non-bash.

What version of bash are we talking about here? It's not the case that
ebuilds will always be bash 3, which is enough to make GLEP 55 the safe
option.
