Well, I'm not sure I see any contradiction. When people say that gentoo
is about choice, it means that we should give the end-user flexibility
whenever it is feasible. Of course that doesn't mean that there should
be a lunar-lander-in-a-box use flag. However, if KDE 4.2 includes a
lunar lander module we should in fact add such a flag for the benefit of
those of us who don't own space programs.
So, Gentoo isn't about choice. Gentoo is about empowering users. And
we do that by giving them a choice whenever we can afford to. So,
Gentoo is about choice. Q.E.A. ;)
