I agree with the safe bit, but that "don't need to change them" phrase is 
self-evidently false, or Gentoo wouldn't have needed to make the
--as-needed change either.  The change didn't magically happen the moment 
the need appeared.

(Then again, I never believed that equally self-evidently false "no user 
serviceable parts inside" sticker, either.  When it's a few screws and a 
50 cent fuse, and I'm the user without a microwave as a result...)
