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? -- Stratos Psomadakis <psomas@g.o>
