Looks like this will not work for all noarch packages. Stardict dictionary itself is noarch, but it RDEPENDS on stardict package which is keyworded only on some archs. So we'll be forced either to keyword stardict on all archs or we need to introduce some new way to work with such situations. -- Peter.
