18 That's cool. I tried to also be constructive in my mail - sorry if
19 that didn't get through. I was saying that the patched version should
20 probably be a separate ebuild.
22 But Mathy's (sorry for the mistype in my last mail Mathy) suggestion
23 to go ahead with renaming the USE flag but *not* flipping it to
24 default on is also a good step.
