Ideally, by you putting in the work and supporting more than one API,
since doing so vastly improves the user experience.

Failing that, SLOT plus blockers. Then if it turns out that really
doesn't work (and it's not just developers being utterly lazy), either
ABI_SLOT or parts in a future EAPI.

Every consumer of libpng that wants to improve from the current
situation, yes.
