Anything that would enable us to document with more than a few words,
which is what we're practically limited to with the current format of
use.desc, would help. The currently available documentation on USE
flags is clearly insufficient, maybe not for you and me and other
devs, but for the majority of our users. Note that this is not the
same as optionally adding more specific documentation on a global flag
in the metadata.xml of a package.

Good idea. How do you plan to cope with the (currently) local USE flag
conflicts though ?
