the concern isn't about "no app using the new feature", it's about
having to rebuild everything that depends on libpsl so that they can
link against libpsl8, otherwise they'll all break once libpsl5 drops out
of the archive.

some library transitions can happen automatically.  others require a
little effort.

those changes look sensible to me thus far.

I'd appreciate a little bit more detail in the psl documentation itself
about the expected semantics of NO_STAR_RULE -- it apparently doesn't
mean "ignore all rules that have stars in them", right?  But i don't see
where someone reading the documentation would learn that.

thanks for sorting this out!
