From my perspective sets notation is actually worthless and confusing (but that's another topic). IIRC I've already spoke with portage team to think about making it emerge option instead or at least decouple it from sets semantics if possible (or it was about @live-rebuild? hmm). I think there are some preserved-related bugs (false positives) that need to be fixed first. Otherwise I'd welcome it being stable. I've already forgot what revdep-rebuild is thanks to portage-2.2 -- regards MM
