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
