true. And there are so many more applications of this – for all packages
that I have installed and that have language-specific extra package,
always install (and remove) those for $LANG and $LANG2; for all
{TeX,haskell,C library} packages, always install (and remove) the
corresponding doc package; for all Haskell packages always install the
corresponding profiling data package; for all library packages always
install the corresponding debugging package... but I digress.

But for now, the resume is that we put it into the sysadmin’s hand to
install nss packages for all architectures he thinks his users want to
run binaries on?
