6 As a compromise solution for minor archs, it would be nice if there were a
7 portage feature allowing me to ACCEPT_KEYWORDS those packages that are
8 keyworded both ~arch, and stable on some major arch. For example, on m68k, it
9 would select packages that are keyworded ~m68k && amd64, or ~m68k && x86,
10 etc. This would allow me to run m68k "kinda stable".
