At some time in the past (like a year ago?) I had to add it to my make.conf
because some packages would not work without it, but forgot the details. This
is what is currently using it on my system:

$ euse -I semantic-desktop
global use flags (searching: semantic-desktop)
************************************************** **********
[+ C ] semantic-desktop - Cross-KDE support for semantic search and
information retrieval

Installed packages matching this USE flag:

local use flags (searching: semantic-desktop)
************************************************** **********
[+ C ] semantic-desktop (kde-base/pykde4):
Enables Nepomuk and Soprano python language bindings

A full KDE DE may need it more than this.

Compiling hundred of packages. Most are not related to
the flag change, but need updating. The semantic-desktop
flag set in make.conf.

I'll post results tomorrow.
