I guess there are only a few cases where a package should be keyworded
for eg x86, but not for amd64, so these few cases can be handled by
p.masks, right?

So, we can have a single x86 keyword, and a single x86 'parent' profile,
and subprofiles for x86(or x86_32), amd64, and x32.

I guess it's not that simple, but I think that's how the mips profiles work?
