I still don't get what problem you're trying to solve with that. SLOT
operator dependencies are known to work for the problem, and have
received extensive testing both on Gentoo (with the old KDE packages)
and elsewhere. Why not just go with those plus blockers initially, and
then add in ABI_SLOT only if it turns out that developers really can't
handle using SLOT correctly?
