Well, thats part of the problem. As Darwin is not self-hosting  
currently, it requires a highly modified OS X environment(read:  
progressive profile) to built it, and the progressive profile shares  
the same keyword, *-macos, with the collision-protected profile.  
Another keyword isn't really feasible, I was thinking more along the  
lines of a variable added to the use-expand list in the profiles.
