I agree 110% with this. It confused me a while ago when I started to
use LICENSE, but I think the general acceptance is that we should
So license in a separate block; you can have several license lines
making the MAINTAINER/COMMENT block unnecessarily large.
Not too sure about keeping _DEPENDS with USE; there're additional
variables often set with USE, perhaps a block for _DEPENDS and then
USE etc underneath? (could follow with USERS/GROUPS).
