11 How would this work with packages which treat unset LINGUAS as "install
12 all languages", and empty but set LINGUAS as "install no languages" (the
13 way LINGUAS was supposed to work)? When changing between the two, emerge
14 -pv would show no changes, and there is no way for ebuilds to work
15 around that. I'm all for telling users what parts of a package are
16 optional, but incorrect info is worse than no info. (This doesn't apply
17 to the KDE ebuilds, since they treat empty and unset LINGUAS the same,
18 but you said all packages.)
