Eh, the whole technical point here is that paludis behaviour differs
from portage (and differs from pkgcore, FWIW).
So, hiding the inconsistency via altering the profiles doesn't change
anything. Plus, the point of the bug's flame fest was that bugzilla is
not a proper place to request such behaviour changes, and definitely not
a reason for QA to mess with the profiles. Sticking the stuff in
package.mask won't make the inconsistent behaviour vanish in any way, it
will just hide it.
So, I'd kinda appreciate if concerned folks (including portage and
relevant affected arches) were involved in this discussion, instead of
sneaking the changes in under QA disguise.
