per-architecture Provides field


I'm thinking of the way to putback NexentaOS[1] changes some more.
As far as OpenSolaris core is concerned, we need to provide virtual
packages, like sunwxml and sunwlxsl to make native SVR4 packaging system
dependency happy. I'm looking to the right way to do so.

Bellow is the snippet from libxslt package where I'm trying to use
Provides field but for "solaris-i386" architecture only.

Could you guys confirm that per-architecture Provides field is a
supported format? If not, what would be the right way?
