Keeping package.use tidy



Sorry about yet another noob question from me.


I somehow lost the overview of the contents in my /etc/portage/package.use file. There are a lot of entries that were asked for by some package I installed. So the file grows and grows. How do you keep this file tidy? How do you know what entries are still required and which became obsolete over time (and a few @world upgrades)?

I use to create a file for each program that needs a change in a USE flag. But if there is any dependency that needs a USE change as well, I put that dependency into that first file then. It could be said that I use a package'ish philosophy of package.use files. Works for me :)
