General software developers should have the following features enabled?
- test (all test suites)
- stricter (horribly strict portage handling)
- digest (ignore package digests)
- cvs (not even documented in "man make.conf")
- sign (gpg key signing for cvs manifest commits)

As well as the infamous
I_KNOW_WHAT_I_AM_DOING="yes"

Certainly test, stricter and digest are all known to me to cause issues
for anyone who doesn't understand what they do and why.
