What is the long term plan here? Stable @system set, stable everything
currently ~mips keyworded, or something random in between that? I'd
caution mips keywording here in general as the team is small and seems
unlikely to keep up from my POV. I'm not being negative, just being
real. I suppose it is somewhat possible to keep up if the mips team
dropped some ~mips packages in general and focused on the @system set.
