The problem is that if you try to revert from a version that has
libfoo.so.5.10 to a version that has libfoo.so.5.5, you'll end up
retaining libfoo.so.5.10 and it might not work. (In the case of libc,
for example, a -current libc and a -6 kernel definitely won't work
ISTM that this is a real concern.
