15 I just recently ran into this, putting USE=gles2 in make.conf, thinking that
16 only the first kind of flags existed. Thus I second this proposal.
18 We could start bikeshedding about the naming (e.g. 1. gles2, 2. only-gles2, to
19 keep it shorter), but I don't think that will lead us anywhere and will just
20 delay the execution of this plan.
22 Thanks for proposing this!
