it's a crap choice.  users shouldn't have to select from diff sets of packages 
because some are too broken to work properly.  it's a bug and needs to be 
fixed.  and it shouldn't require twisting of arms to make people fix their 
broken packages.

also, sci-mathematics/sage is a poor example here.  it isn't in the main tree.  
if people want to add poor packages to their overlays, they're free to.
