Why can't ebuilds like icu be made like openssl or openldap where the
libs are not replaced, but old libs stay and a text is displayed to use
redep-rebuild and afterwards rm the old libs?

That way software doesn't suddenly brake until you reemerge half your
desktop/servers (only to reemerge everything again the next day, because
that lib gets suddenly masked).

I like the behavior of openldap and openssl, I'd like to have that for
gfx-libs that brake the desktop (like icu) too.

Please, please do it dear gentoo devs :)

Daniel
