Yes, I agree with you on this point. Thats why I am in the process of tracing 
out the dependency tree on this. I do have a question for you though. when 
paludis examines the ebuild for pygtk, and notes that it requires dev-
libs/glib, with dev-libs/glib present does it continue to walk the tree and 
check all the dependencies of dev-libs/glib?
