I guess you're right although these kinds of changes would preferably
not be made (from a packager perspective, but not asking things to
stay still because of that)

From a packager's perspective I would have to say that we might
consider this. Especially in gentoo's case where a lot of complexity
might be removed by individually building for example the bdb
filesystem module. From a packager perspective it would be acceptable
to do some custom stuff to build only the bdb module and do an
individual install. Of course, it is not very productive to actually
patch the distribution as that will have to be maintained, but we do
so if needed.
