Now you're playing with semantics. In the case of -r200/-r300 we
are talking about the *exact same* $PV, but for some reason
the revision numbers are confusingly abused for something
that we normally use useflags for (toggling support for specific
toolkits for example).

Please stop abusing revision numbers for something they are
not meant to convey. And please stop pushing developers to
drop perfectly legal usage of the gtk3 useflag.
