I agree, comments within the ebuild are practically invisible to
archteams (at least to me for x86). But also running repoman is usually
the final step, right before committing. The place for comments that
need to be considered during archtesting would be right in the stable
request bug. This is where I usually start.
If I do normal build tests first and then find they have been in vain
when running repoman, then I wasted cycles for the build tests. I'm
unsure if this would apply to your original example, though.
