confusing output triggered by virtual/perl-Module-Pluggable-3.900.0-r1

Sometimes, emerge --tree does not show the most relevant parent, which can confuse the user. It could be improved by searching for the parent with the most specific atom, and displaying that in preference to other parents. Attached is some example emerge output which demonstrates the problem.

This indeed seems to be the case - keywording =dev-libs/openssl-1.0.1c sanitized the output tree.
