I've noticed that youtube-dl supports adding meta-data to mp4's using atomic parsley. There are two versions of atomicparsley in portage at present...
Would it be possible to add a USE flag to youtube-dl to pull this in as a (runtime) dependency?

Yes, it's entirely possible but it's bad practice as re-emerging youtube-dl just to pull in a dependency doesn't make much sense: simply emerging atomicparsley (or atomicparsley-wez? What is the difference?) would have the same effect and keep both up to date. So no, I will not add that USE flag just like I didn't do it for media-video/libav and media-video/ffmpeg.
Cool, I'm perfectly fine with that, was a feature I noticed after downloading some video the other day that I thought others might be interested in.
Thanks for your maintenance efforts.
