So then sets (beyond the three above) are unmasked to ~arch, at least, 
then?  Because last I knew they were in the (last I knew) hard-masked 2.2 
series, only.  So even unmasking them to ~arch would be big news, here.  
(And, since I run ~arch, if they're ~arch keyworded and not in 
package.mask, they're not masked, from my viewpoint.  They might be ~arch, 
but that's not masked, but ~arch.  Masked means either an entry in 
package.mask or KEYWORDS="", to me.)
