A mass revbump only solves the problem for those people tracking pkgsrc-HEAD

using 5.0_BETA or older now and upgrade to current (or 6.0) later, while
having updated their pkgsrc in the meanwhile (most likely), will still face
the problem.  For them the mass revision bumping in pkgsrc will only be an
extra annoyance in the meanwhile.

Can't we just yell loudly in UPDATING, on current-users and in the 6.0 release

        We have an ABI value recorded in +BUILD_INFO - can we not use this
        to indicate a post christos-time_t binary is incompatible with
        an earlier library?
