Ah ok, now i see the point. Usually I prefer to stop depclean (answering
no) and specify the exceptions with emerge --noreplace.
This is because the exclusion of some packages from depclean can affect
the following result of it.
If you install a package having many dependencies, with emerge --oneshot
and then run emerge --depclean you'll see that is easier to run two
times depclean than edit the generated list
