Please explain me why keeping foobar-1.0 ( Released in 10/12/2009 ) is
in favor of a ppc64 stable user when amd64/x86 has foobar-2.1.3 (
Released 60 days ago ) already stabled for them

What if a foobar-1.0 bug pops up? What kind of support will that user
get from the gentoo or upstream maintainer. The most frequent answer
would be "Please update to 2.1.3. 1.0 is 0ld". Yes, not droppping the
keywords is convenient for users but in this case their stable tree gets
obsolet and unsupported
