Definition of reverse -n option.  emerge --remove-from-world pidgin  
That would remove the entry pidgin from the world file.  Then a user 
could use --depclean to remove pidgin and other dependencies that are no 
longer needed.  There would be no need to use -C in that case.

I am subscribed to -user as well.  I been using Gentoo since the 1.4 
days.  This is about improving portage which is a good thing to talk 
about here.  The devs do it, not the user.  ;-)  Also, I already know 
how to use portage pretty good.  I'm not asking for support just trying 
to improve things.
