yoswink, thanks for bringing the discussion to gentoo-dev - i was not 
aware of such an effort.

the idea is really great IMHO and the implementation is pretty straight 
forward. thanks to flameeyes and cardoe for putting their heads together.

now this needs to be extended and made mandatory for all ebuilds. in order 
to reduce the workload the global useflags should only be documented 
once - while still allowing ebuilds to extend (or even override?) the 
global description.

great stuff all around.
happy hacking
