I bet this resonate with many minds out here. I am also planning to make
a draft implementation.

I suppose if you just use emerge -u @world, are running stable, and
possibly don't care about services using old-version libs...

If you're running ~arch, prefer emerge -NuD @world, and do a lib_users or
the like after updates, at least here, I've found it's often easier to
simply reboot, than to restart X/KDE and half a dozen services, even if I
could in theory avoid the full reboot.

That -D makes a big difference, tho, and -N of course compounds it.
Between that and the more frequent updates on ~arch...

But of course I'm usually running a live-git kernel too, so that just
gives me even more excuse to do a git pull and a kernel rebuild before
the reboot too, so as to get the new kernel as well. =:^)
