That's a good point. But, currently the unsafe_depends scheme works even if one's source tree is not updated or all packages are not updated together, or if you don't use -u. The problem with our revbump scheme is that while the ABI change provokes bumping PKGREVISION in depending packages, it doesn't increment something in the package itself, so that one can say "these two binary packages have an ABI bump between them" easily. So maybe we just need an ABI serial number.
