I've been thinking about the blockers and suggests thing more as a
result of the kdebuild stuff... How does this look?

DEPENDENCIES="
    post,suggested: x11-themes/shiny [[ Makes the interface shiny ]]
    "

Essentially, you'd be able to annotate any package dep spec (and
possibly src_uri thing?) with a short message that could be displayed
to the user.

Is it best kept in the dep spec? Or should it move elsewhere?
