That makes sense but then the problem is on the poor documentation we
have in the Internet.
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?part=2&chap=1
Here no mention to that option is made
Nor is in:
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/gentoo-upgrading.xml

And in fact no mention to the option is made in the doc space at all. I
may also be wrong here but I don't recall finding it when I started with
portage and no notice was issued since then so either I misunderstood
it, kinda likely by then, or it was added later. And the fact it wasn't
commented at all in the documentation didn't help.

The question now is anybody thinks this shouldn't appear in the
handbook? If nobody has a problem I'll prepare a patch.

PS: howarang thanks for the point I found it really odd this was missing.
