In a profile's default USE flags I'd prefer to see only those enabled,
that do not pull in more dependencies (to download) then found in
Samples of what I mean:
'python': We cannot do anything without python: keep it enabled.
'zlib': Even if zlib is not USEd, it is part of 'system': keep enabled.
'berkdb': If not USEd, sys-libs/db is not needed: disable by default.
'unicode': does not pull in anything, but IMO is state of the art ?
For 'fortran', this pulls in dev-libs/gmp and dev-libs/mpfr, so I'd like
to see it disabled by default.
As a result, I'd say to have these use flags (on linux) as default:
ncurses: required by bash
python: required by portage
ssl: required by openssh (pulled in by virtual/ssh on linux)
readline: required by baselayoyt-prefix (why?)
zlib: required by openssh
unicode: nice to have without additional dependencies
