Default sys-libs/db, emerge and revdep-rebuild

Hi there,

I had a different problem with the db upgrade last week: postfix
broke. I had to run revdep-rebuild to fix it; this is fine, except
that nothing prompted me to run revdep-rebuild. So:

- Am I expected to run revdep-rebuild after every emerge -uavDN world now?
- If so, can we get more integration with emerge itself?
- If not, could future db upgrades grow an elog about revdep-rebuilding?

postfix breakage was pretty annoying because (a) email is a pretty
important part of servers, and (b) the postfix daemon itself kept
working, but all of the little child processes failed, thus making the
failure not as transparent as one might want.

Cheers,

Dirkjan

Yes, that's always been the case.

I'd like us to add EAPI support for abi-slot dependencies, as
discussed in these bugs:

No, some devs seems to assume breaking users system is ok, see [1],
but the thruth is that users would at least like to have a warning
before it happens. Please fill a bug against the offending package.
