9 Sometimes it is not correctly implemented (or its description
10 is not exact). For example, if you emerge mysql with minimal-flag,
11 you will get just mysql-client, not server.
13 But mysql is described as "A fast, multi-threaded, multi-user SQL
14 database server" in gentoo package database. And server functionality
15 can not be imho considered as "some unnecessary feature" for any
16 server-software (without that it is not server anymore, is it?)...
18 I do have "minimal" in my global USE flags, but it happened
19 to me a few times that I had problems because of it and I had
20 to put "-minimal" for some packages (in packages.use)...
