As before with libcanberra, I don't think it makes sense to have basic
libraries like this as USE-flags. AFAICT, this should just become a
hard-dep in most cases, and where there's a compelling reason for the
ebuild to provide an alternative (or internal) event system, have this
as a default-enabled USE-flag.
