See... that's where the problem lies. Where do we stop and where do we
separate? Are the groups designed for laziness or designed to actually
group like items? Perhaps the others can be grouped into a "@DESKTOP"
or something, since they have nothing to do with Gnome (except hal,
which is a local anyway) specifically, but are used by Gnome ebuilds. I
mean, why not include dvdr and gstreamer and any of the other things
that can enhance Gnome?
Personally, I think the groups should be well defined and quite
specific. After all, we are simply trying to reduce the number of
things a person needs to configure in make.conf, not make it so a person
can USE="@GNOME" and expect it to give them everything they would want
(or are we?) for a Gnome desktop. I think if we were going to do that,
then our best bet would be to start using profiles to add a bunch of
all, /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2004.3/desktop/gnome sounds
like a winner.
