8 Using package moves like this causes for example the following problem.
9 If you now depend on just x11-libs/libcompizconfig you really can't be
10 sure that the user has libcompizconfig files on his system because it's
11 enough that the files from beryl-settings are there. As such building
12 stuff will fail. Stuff does work as long as
13 >=x11-libs/libcompizconfig-0.6. for example is used everywhere.
