I wonder if we should introduce suggested option set.
Say, each packages define PKG_SUGGESTED_OPTIONS.lite, 
PKG_SUGGESTE_OPTIONS.gnome and so on
and user define PKG_SUGGESTED_OPTIONS_SET=lite.

Yes please! :)

     Looking at the tree above, I don't see that there are many options
which would trim the dependency tree. But I don't know if there perhaps
are undocumented flags (the script I used to generate the tree parses
the output from "make show-depends" and "make show-options") which would
trim it down further.

You can use "make show-depends-options".

Wow, that shows a lot more than 'make show-depends'. Thanks :)
