Ofcourse they do have deps, but so does our standard compiler (we don't
have gcc listed in every ebuild). I do not question their existance, i
question their position in comparison to most other USE flags, compiling
options (how do you want to compile) vs. compile time options (what do
you want to compile exactly = USE). The suggested division is just a
superficial one.
