The fate of the PR notwithstanding, I'd be interested in hearing more
about what problems projects have experienced with entry points, if you
have time to describe some examples. We're looking at using them in more
places than we already do, so it would be useful to hear about drawbacks
we might not have thought about, and about what other options projects
have moved to.
