Fark.  Knew I was forgetting to grep somewhere...

Follow up discussion point; anyone got a character to use for 
seperating use_expand groups and their members?  I'm well aware '_' is 
used right now, but it's use is nonoptimal- the only way to break down 
a use_expanded target in IUSE is to know the use_expand grouppings 
themselves, which is profile defined... a flaw I've hated since day 
one.
