I agree and this is exactly what my tracker is about, to track porting
issues or even misuse of gtk{,2,3} useflags. You confuse me.

My tracker has shown that not all ebuilds follow that policy or even
can't because of migration issues or cause they are special in another
way.

If you think I missed something in my explanation there, add a comment.
