I am thinking on them (well, I started this thread because I was

But, what would occur if we have three slots (for example gtk+), and app
needs to RDEPEND on slot 2? How would we set it to use every 2.* SLOT
and not >=2?
Also, what is the reason to try to skip "ABI_SLOT" way? It would have
some advantages, and would allow us to make ABI_SLOTs mutually exclusive
by default (as most cases would need) instead of needing to move this
"mutual exclussion" on every ebuild needing to use SLOTs for ABI bumps.
It looks cleaner to me over being constraint to SLOT :|
