Seems even acceptable. Not sane but acceptable. People tend to keyword
packages both '~amd64 ~x86' testing them on amd64 only; amd64 users
tend to get sad when someone keyworded a package '~x86' only.
On the other hand, it'd be good to have ABI sub-keywords then.
Something like 'x86:x86 -*' if a package is actually x86-only.
