5 I personally don't think this is a good idea. Imho USE_EXPAND should be
6 used for flags that will be used by multiple (>5?) packages -- for the
7 simple reason, that USE_EXPAND somewhat hints for using /etc/make.conf
8 for configuration (yes, you can still use package.use, but this feature
9 is probably not so well known). Also the bug gives no reasoning, why
10 having USE_EXPAND is a good thing here.
