I've read enough warnings like this (many packages use them) that it
occurred to me that perhaps there should be some better way of dealing
with this.

I realize we have a huge discussion going on about suggested depends
and such which could resolve it long-term.  If that really doesn't
work out, then perhaps at least it would be useful if it were obvious
in ELOG messages what the old and new version were, or some other
stopgap measure.  Bonus points if the ebuild can figure it out and
only generate the warning conditionally, but I'd be happy if I could
just delete the message without having to figure out what version I
was previously running...
