Now you're playing with semantics. In the case of -r200/-r300 we are talking about the *exact same* $PV, but for some reason the revision numbers are confusingly abused for something that we normally use useflags for (toggling support for specific toolkits for example). Please stop abusing revision numbers for something they are not meant to convey. And please stop pushing developers to drop perfectly legal usage of the gtk3 useflag. -- Cheers, Ben | yngwin Gentoo developer Gentoo Qt project lead
