Default New global USE flag called "ffi" ?

Let's change USE=libffi to more generic USE=ffi so it will cover also
eg. ffcall. DESCRIPTION could be simple:

"Enable support for Foreign Function Interface"

-- cut --

1. "libffi" (dev-java/jamvm): use dev-libs/libffi to call native methods

2. "libffi" (dev-python/pygobject): Enable support to connect to signals
on python objects from C.

3. "libffi" (gnustep-base/gnustep-base): Use dev-libs/libffi instead of

4. "libffi" (sys-devel/gcc): Build the portable foreign function
interface library

5. "libffi" (sys-devel/llvm): Add support to call arbitrary external
(natively compiled) functions via dev-libs/libffi

6. "ffi" (app-i18n/uim): Enable support for virtual/libffi

7. "ffi" (dev-ruby/nokogiri): Use the Foreign Function Interface library
(as provided by dev-java/jruby or dev-ruby/ffi depending on the
implementation) rather than building a C extension to wrap around the
libxml/libxslt interfaces. Note: JRuby always uses the FFI interface as
native extensions are not supported.

Any objections... ?
