9 If the suggestion is to be taken, perhaps "gentoo-branding" would be a
10 clearer USE flag? Simply "branding" to me indicates upstream branding,
11 say all the things necessary to have a real Firefox (TM) registered
12 browser, icon and theming complete as upstream, instead of the Gentoo
13 version with various (unapproved upstream) Gentoo patches.
15 In theory, people should read the USE description, but I don't think we
16 need a repeat of the gtk/gtk2 confusion. =8^P
