I like BINCOMPAT proposal but it solves only half of the problem. You
assume that all dependent packages cares about binary compatibility.
Why not using a BDEPEND var in those dependent packages affected by the
BINCOMPAT values of their dependencies?

For instance, I would set the following:
 - in net-dialup/ppp ebuild:     BINCOMPAT=${PV}
 - in net-dialup/pptpd ebuild:   BDEPEND="net-dialup/ppp"
