Yes, that's the whole idea. The names 'lapack' and 'blas' are just symlinks to
whatever library implements them, like the reference libraries, or ATLAS, or
perhaps at a later stage MKL.

In the stable tree sci-libs/atlas is the only atlas package available.
lapack-atlas is currently still masked, but the idea is to perform the
transition soon and phase out sci-libs/atlas.
