It seems like it would make sense to allow devel/example to be a
default flavor so that, for instantiated example, editors/vim-lite =>
editors/vim/lite and editors/vim could potentially be a 'full' flavor
or unflavored, if that's your flavor. I personally learn towards
default flavor, though, because that gives you a chance to be slightly
more descriptive.
