12 Thank you, Lee, but that was just a coincidental change. The changed-deps
13 behaviour has been going on since I've started using it in my update routine
14 several years ago. It's a little tiresome when emerge wants to recompile
15 libreoffice and firefox every time I update my system and I'd like to
16 understand in more detail what these parameters do so I can judge the necessity
17 of using them to keep my installation in a consistent state.
