Ahhh, so a specific version can be placed in there just like in the
world file.  Neato !!!

Lets say I have a set named dk-kde, with the prefix Allen suggested, and
I put kde-meta in that file.  Would that emerge all the KDE or just that
one package?  I emerged kde-meta to install KDE so that is all there is
in my world file right now.  I notice you have several kde packages in
your list.

I'm going to do some reading on the links already posted in a bit. 
Getting ready to cook a roast.  Got to peal taters, wash carrots and
slice up a onion.
