Yes, but that has not much to do wth the issue here, USE flags are not

Anyone know how Debian handles library checkins into their build system?
Do they always rebuild everything? Or is there some other process to
determine if rebuilds happen?

It looks as if Debian does not have any automatic rebuilds at all.

Yes, it's a manual process. See for instance.

So, either we come up with a manual way to do this for openSUSE,

openSUSE:Factory's prjconf already uses rebuild="local", which is
essentially this manual operation.

Setting to manual however should be screwing us over on SONAME
changes. To that end, I am currently running a script, and have already
identified one problematic package:

Completely manual rebuilding à la Debian? No thanks.
I think we should use rebuild="direct" at least.
