8 I'd say that's a good thing, it saved having to change every ebuild
9 depending on qt to depend on || (qt qt-meta) and is the same way the
10 transition to split XOrg packages was handled. Te -meta addition to the
11 KDE package names was a necessary kludge, because the split builds lived
12 alongside the monolithic variants.
