6 because there are slotted packages - and revdep-rebuild would have to
7 take the newest version within the same slot. That is a task, that is
8 not very simple - well, actually portage (emerge itself) has a major bug
9 for slotted packages:
10 emerge only noticed updates within the latest slot
12 (so portage will not notice any update to gcc 3.3 if you've got gcc 3.4
13 installed, for example)

20 yes, it does because you're lucky and don't have slotted packages in
21 that line.

27 I remember, that it once worked for me! really!
29 You have to remove ~/.rev* and then run "revdep-rebuild --package-names"
