Just so another view is represented then:

I think EIEIO is pretty neat. The EDE feature is also prety neat. It has
most features you need in a project root fromework already. What it
lacks is ease of use.

If we rewrite EDE using some other method, it will eventually turn into
EDE if its going to cater for the same use-cases.

IMHO if one would like to work on reducing the footprint of Emacs, which
is a worthy goal, greater gains could be made implementing lazy loading
of C libraries on platforms where its possible.
