1 For the record, there is a bug open for this. (#64009)
2 Personally, I'm not keen on the idea.
3 the only way which we can do this is by detecting which arch we are
4 installing the sources, for, which immediately means many installs of
5 USE=minimal are not the same.
7 There are plenty of other reasons I can go into, but if anyone feels
8 strongly to push this change, then feel free to reply with justification
9 as to why. Technical info to back it up as well please :)
