webapp.eclass currently sets SLOT=${PVR}. This is, in principle, a good idea as
it allows to have multiple versions installed side-by-side. It also has one
important downside: security revision bumps are now ineffective, as the
vulnerable version does not get uninstalled.

I've done a little testing to see if the unmerging happens correctly:
- set SLOT=$PV in webapp.eclass
- emerge www-apps/sitebar-3.2.6
- emerge www-apps/sitebar-3.3.7, install in a different -d
- emerge a duff www-apps/sitebar-3.3.7-r1. Result: 3.3.7 is unmerged, 3.2.6 and
  3.3.7-r1 are protected.

What else should we be thinking of?
