Anyone using sparc/sparc64/2005.1?

I saw something on the web the other day about the 2005.1 profile, but
it didn't sink in until this morning that I ought to check my systems
to see if they're current.

I'm using 2005.0, and it looks like the only difference between it and
2005.1 is the latter's addition of a few default USE flags.

So, is there any good reason not to move to 2005.1?

At some point the 2005.0 profile will be deprecated, but not yet.
Basically yeah, they're almost the same, just forcing "gstreamer" USE
since it's a better backend for totem than xine atm and just minor stuff
like that - nothing earth shattering and no special considerations are
needed to upgrade.
Real work is being done in the dev/ profiles and no, i wouldn't
recommend switching blindly there. I'll be posting experimental stages
to use against that with a brief comment on what's new, what breaks,
what it fixes and other considerations.
