I don't like the approach taken in 6. I'd rather state that there should
not be file collisions between the dynamic slots. We already handle
things this way in ruby (with a common 'all' and specific version

For 9c I can't see us limiting users to a single ruby implementation by
default (the only current exception is www-apache/passenger), so a
combined ||() block makes no sense to me. I think it is better to be
explicit here and express the real situation with multiple ||() blocks
if needed.

Finally, I don't expect ruby to use this unless we can ensure that this
works with our current ebuilds without changes. I'm fine with supporting
some code in the eclass to determine which mechanism to use in which
way, but we won't be spending huge amounts of time switching to yet
another system. To me the perceived benefits aren't big enough.
