That wasn't my intention; I added that comment simply to stop the flow of one-line emails.

I do wish one of you devs would pick him up on his behaviour _on the list_ one of these days.. instead it's _always_ me who gets the flak. Or do you think his post was anything other than a "one-liner with zero content, and no intent but to insult"?

Not complaining, simply pointing out better ways to do things; a technical discussion iow. The reason that has been more difficult a discussion than it should be is because of the unpleasant comments from McCreesh, Ferdy and Leverton.

I was never under the impression that Gentoo devs would do anything other than whatever they wanted. Can you tell me what a 'server' USE flag _breaks_?
