    yeah. I think this also fits into the special-case i mentioned: it isnt
    connected to something user-selectable, it's a side-effect of the first
    'feature selection' the user does: 'what platform do you compile your
    kernel on'. As such it is a convenience group-selection.

    i.e. what we have behind this is still a clean tree of dependencies.

    The mess begins i think when options with real code behind them start to
    grow back and forth dependencies in form of criss-crossing 'depends on'
    and 'select' instances.
