Maybe a nested set could inherit the USE flag settings of its parent set
unless it has its own entry in package.use.
Though what happens if a package is in both sets which have
conflicting flags in package.use? I would say that the nested set has
to have priority. If not, I can easily imagine people getting confused
when their USE settings for a set are being applied to all but
one or two packages.
