If a flag is in use.desc (global), then I should be able to put it in my
USE= in my /etc/make.conf. That also means that the flag should only be
used to do exactly as it says in use.desc, and nothing else.
The package in question here should really use a different USE-flag,
because it is overloading the original (intended?) meaning of the mp3
USE-flag, leading to possibly unexpected results for the end-user.
There is nothing unclear on the descriptions here, the same flag is just
used for two different things, which is wrong if the flag is global.
