Little but useful for some users (ok, it's useful for me) ebuild improvement, makes kdeedu-meta, kdetoys-meta and kdetoys-meta optional.

actual improved ebuild
The issue of adding use flags for kde-meta has been raised a few times before.
Our answer is that if you don't want all kde packages, you shouldn't use kde-meta.

Yes. It has been.
Because policy of no-use-flags-in-meta-packages is beyond reason. And it isn't even works right now, as you can see there are quite a few USE flags in this ebuild already.
I was spending some time, reading old issues about it. Point was "meta packages is workaround until sets is unavailable", then point was "now sets are avaiable, and meta packages will be converted to sets" (in 2008). Didn't happen.
Now. I really can't see why USE="accessibility" allowed to exist, and USE="games" is not.
