those people should be smacked (for the interest of disclosure, i have 
violated the "bad soname" rule for the sake of following upstream)

4) portage maintains a list of ABI SONAMEs in use and does not unmerge the 
library until all consumers are gone

i'm referring to the specific file of course, not anything else in the 
package ... so integrating the hack eutils.eclass:preserve_old_lib() into 
portage so it isnt a hack (not a knock against the current implementation 
here; it's always going to be a hack until portage manages proper unmerging 
of the ABI library)
