10 This is the general trend that bug #12499 is supposed to address. We need
11 a global server/client flag to allow individual ebuilds to disable parts of
12 packages (i.e. when USE=-server, I only want the mysql client installed,
13 not full server. There are many ebuilds that would benefit from this, as
14 is discussed in the bug.)
16 Personally, I think it'd be best to get #12499 in place than to add local
17 use flags on individual packages.
19 Thoughts?
