I'm filing this bug, because old style virtuals should be removed.

This leads to an issue where I cannot replace app-crypt/mit-krb5 with app-crypt/heimdal and invoking preserved-rebuild to not break my install.

Affected packages are at least app-crypt/mit-krb5 and app-crypt/heimdal.

Tried quite a few things, nothing worked to solve this:
[ebuild  N    ] app-crypt/heimdal-1.3.3-r1  USE="X berkdb hdb-ldap ipv6 otp pkinit ssl threads -afs -test" 5,610 kB
[blocks B     ] app-crypt/mit-krb5 ("virtual/krb5" is blocking app-crypt/heimdal-1.3.3-r1)

That's not going to work unfortunately:

* You cannot even build one when the other is present without some surgery in the Makefiles (both provide same but incompatible header files).
* Even if you do build, they provide the same libraries while following different -but similar- versioning schemes.  There is no guarantee that it will work / will not clash in the future - even if it does work now.

Probably a !! blocker for both packages is in order.  Closing as CANTFIX.
