How is the case of something like libpng going to be handled, where we
only support one API (and so only one SLOT)?  Either in the proposed
ABI_SLOT thing or when using slot operators?

For the slot-operator case, will every consumer of libpng be forced to
change their dep to libpng:= to ensure they get rebuilt when libpng
bumps from 1.5 to 1.6??
