Last time I broached the subject, I could not get my argument through... I even 
once made a patch, which would've allowed the user (at their own risk) to tell to ignore all explicitly-specified shlib-major numbers -- and 
portmgr@ shut it down, even though the new flag would not be on by default.

If the consensus has changed over the years, coming up with the new text for the 
manual would not be a problem...
