In my pkgsrc tree, I have commented out gnome-vfs-smb from
meta-pkgs/gnome-base since I don't need it but want the rest of gnome.
Would it be reasonable to add 'smb' to mk/default/options.description,
and to gnome-base (defaulting on), so that I could do


and avoid it here, and in other not-yet-discovered places?

I'm already doing this with -arts to avoid pulling it into a few
packages, but that option was preexisting, and optionizing a
meta-package seems a bit different.
