Hi Xavier,

I remember that as being my fault!... You sent this e-mail to the
mailing list,

and as I felt that I only had a very incomplete answer I sent you an
e-mail in private and promised a fuller, public answer soon - which I
never finished, because it depended on fixing some things that looked
trivial - but the fix became eev-template.el, which took me ages to

Sorry, good questions! Let me be clearer about the plan. The other
"ways" besides eepitch will not be deprecated, they will just become
secondary - eepitch will be explained before the other ways in most
docs, and the scripts to invoke eev-rctool, to set up eechannel, and
to test if they work will be rewritten to become eepitch-based.

Exactly. 8-)

No, but I would like to rearrange the definitions in files to isolate
the parts that depend on eev-rctool from the other parts. This is a
medium-term goal, though.

  Cheers! =)
