Source package libgd2 uses flavors explicitly.

python-xklavier, scenic, morituri, lash and a bunch of sugar packages 
use flavors implicitly through python-autotools.mk.

You are quite welcome to post here to the list any question you might 
have with using thise relatively new feature, as I obviously have an 
interest in weeding out any bugs in it and encourage use of it. :-D

No need to cc me directly - sending to the list is enough.  If I don't 
respond, then please simply email again to "poke" me, as I sometimes get 
overwhelmed by emails and don't get around to respond to them all.
