^^ is actually the main point of my "ebuild formatting nazi" agenda (usually followed by "oh why did you break formatting in my shiny ebuild!11, revert!" chants by various developers in case I happened to touch packages of theirs). I never understood the reason after keeping deps not sorted alphabetically where order doesn't matter - it's like someone purposely made ebuild harder to read - it's counter productive. -- regards MM
