6 Thanks. Will do.

13 Good idea... it shouldn't be a big deal to do that... I was just trying
14 to keep the patch nice and simple.

20 It repeats the USE flags for each package, but ONLY the use flags that
21 apply to that package. Personally, I think this is a more desirable
22 behavior, because of when you do something like 'emerge world', then
23 you'll have this really BIG list of stuff, and lots of repeating USE
24 flags. However, it puts a empty line between each package, so that each
25 list of USE flags is shown nicely for each package.. like this:
27 [stuff here] package useflag useflag2
28 * useflag - does something
29 * useflag2 - does something else
31 [stuff here] package useflag3 useflag
32 * useflag3 - does yet another thing
33 * useflag - does something
35 And so on... for the entire list. Currently, it searches global flags
36 first, then falls back to local flags... but you're right -- its a
37 better idea to search locals first, then globals. I don't really think
38 its necessary though to note that its a local flag or a global flag...
39 its not like it matters too much when you're trying to decide whether
40 you want to set it or not. You just want to know what the package wants
41 to use it for. I spose it could do something like * [local] useflag -
42 description, and * [global] useflag - description...
