This brings up an interesting question -- I fully admit to not having
delved into the relevant code so apologies if I'm being dense.
Assuming that I'm running www-exp and tinderd, if I add, say,
x11/gnome2-lite to the queue, will it expand to doing the -r for me?
Either way, an option to specify recursion (or not) from the www-exp
system would be wonderful.
FYI. I've now got two tinderboxes running (i386 and amd64) which, once
I've figured out a few more things, will be available "for hire"
Though I need to talk to Oliver a little bit more first... :)
