'in_iuse' or 'iuse_contains'?

if $(in_iuse foobar); do
	$(cake)
fi

or

if $(iuse_contains foobar); do
	$(cake)
fi

Thinking from just a general pronunciation perspective, though.  Assuming
someone reads that as "If in eye-use..." or "If eye-use contains ...".

'has_iuse' Almost reads as "has issues ...", hence, "if has issues; then
($cake) && $(grief_counseling) ...".
