Subject: [gentoo-dev] questionable usefulness of virtual/pdfviewer,psviewer

1 Got a request¹ providing them, but I don't see any sense in it at all. The
2 only package using it is app-office/lyx. Imho the dependency should be
3 removed, since it is a optional runtime dependency the user has to configure
4 anyways, so it'll never work out of the box. This sort of virtual is only
5 useless bloat imho. I guess the same goes for virtual/textbrowser which is -
6 for whatever reason - the run- _and_ compile-time dependency of
7 app-text/docbook-sgml-utils.
9 Opinions?!
