Honestly not sure what convention is for naming, but I found this
recently, and thought I might throw it out there:

 ~ $ euse -i lame
....
[+ C  ] lame - Prefer using LAME libraries for MP3 encoding support
....

While, as a user, I prefer this to be mp3, I also understand there may
be more than one library for such-and-so, so I'm willing to read up on
USE flags to find out which is the best to use. Overall, I would prefer
naming according to the names of the libraries they'll enable.

    Are you ready?
