Those are the ones we probably do understand. You just up the SLOT (and
if you really need to, use blockers between slots, although this is
discouraged in favour of writing better ebuilds), and everything that
build+run-deps upon these things uses := dependencies.

That depends. If you only have to do it after an upgrade, same
solution. If you have to do it with a rebuild too, then that's one of
the situations I claim we don't fully understand because no-one has
specified what the exact general problem is (although lots of people
have looked at one particular case and assumed that their case holds
for everything, which isn't true).
