9 I know the proposed system obviously and it's still flawed in that
10 really doesn't deal with USE flag versioning in a consistent,
11 predictable way.

17 That is all the reason needed here. I'm no biggie on the current
18 situation (altough if people actually read the USE flag descriptions it
19 wouldn't be half the issue), but interchanging to be deprecated
20 behaviour with something just as bad is a regression. I'll post more on
21 some changes that I'd like to see implemented for this later.
23 And the issue never has been about changing a few occurances in the
24 tree.
