It will fix the "out of the box" circular dependency for people who switch to a default desktop profile. This is the main problem we need to solve now. Certain useflag and package combinations will trigger a circular dep, that is a know occurrence in Gentoo. But at least with a default configuration things should work out of the box. For other configurations there are workarounds (in this case: install gtk+ without cups, or poppler without cairo enabled first).
