ebuild-maintenance/removal: Change inconsistent virtual revbump policy
This partly reverts commit f28b85f069c70538c618a3cedece77a359601dd8. There's no reason to treat virtuals differently here, there's no exception for it in how Portage works, and it may cause upgrade difficulties for users. It's also led to extensive confusion with contributors & new developers as we have to try to explain the inconsistency between devmanual and policy for non-virtuals. See: https://github.com/gentoo/gentoo/pull/27637 Closes: https://github.com/gentoo/devmanual/pull/303 Signed-off-by: Sam James <sam@gentoo.org>
