Needs a dedicated package maintainer, somebody that'll actually use games from EGS. Won't be me.

Now that Lutris is starting to support the Epic Games Store, this might no longer be needed? (https://github.com/lutris/lutris/releases/tag/v0.5.9-beta1)
And of course the prerequisite Legendary requires Python 3.8

Will probably take some more investigation into how well the Lutris support works compared to this.

Python is now 3.9.x so there should no longer be any blockers for anyone wanting to package this.
