I wanted to work at some point on splitting out gnome and kde profiles
to separate ones. Perhaps desktop profile could be a generic universal
one with USE flags enabled that rox/lxde/fluxbox and so on would like as
well, and then gnome adds its stuff, and kde adds its own stuff.
Or desktop could be one that enabled both GNOME and KDE stuff as now, by
multi-inheriting both gnome and kde profiles.
Or perhaps both a lowest common denominator desktop-base profile and a
big desktop one enabling everything...
The current state is pretty suboptimal.
With desktop profile you get KDE/Qt flags and also GNOME flags, yet none
of them is complete of what you'd like to have - e.g in GNOME case most
everyone would want to add nautilus, gnome-keyring and some more USE
flags, but you can't do that by simply selecting the appropriate desktop
profile, so many don't get the correct and desired things enabled for
their desktop environment of choice.
