...and here we see the problem. You think that "I haven't noticed it
break" means "it works".
The problem with preserved-libs (and emerge --jobs, for that matter) is
that the design is "I can think of a few ways where it might break, so
I'll hard-code in special cases to handle those, but in general I
can't think of what other problems there are so it's fine". That's a
bad way of doing things.
