 For example, libsdl with USE="directfb" requires DirectFB; and DirectFB
 with USE="sdl" requires libsdl. One of those flags should be temporary
 disabled to resolve circular dependency.

 It would be nice to be able to do this in paludis command line.
 For example:

 $ paludis --may-switch-use sdl,directfb -i libsdl DirectFB

 paludis detects circular dependency and switches one of those flags
 (temporarily) off. Now we have both packages installed and may enable use-
 flag back:

 $ paludis --dl-reinstall if-use-changed -i world
