That is true.  However, there's a problem; you can control package 
options of individual packages with USE flags, but you can't control 
compilation switches of individual packages with CFLAGS.  This will 
naturally make people feel like using USE flags to modify compilation 
options is a good idea.

Surely, one has to sympathize with this mindset even though it's a wrong 
thing to do.
