I think Ryan means that if the "test" variant of openal-soft had a dep on, say, gtest, you wouldn't get that.

There is just no good way to fix this -- unless we were to decide that a certain set of named variants, like "tests" or "docs" or "gui" , would not be propagated down. Or conversely that only a certain set of named variants are propagated down (like "universal" and -- any others?).

Probably too much trouble.
