7 yoswink, thanks for bringing the discussion to gentoo-dev - i was not
8 aware of such an effort.

13 the idea is really great IMHO and the implementation is pretty straight
14 forward. thanks to flameeyes and cardoe for putting their heads together.
16 now this needs to be extended and made mandatory for all ebuilds. in order
17 to reduce the workload the global useflags should only be documented
18 once - while still allowing ebuilds to extend (or even override?) the
19 global description.
21 great stuff all around.
22 happy hacking
