Is this some kind of mechanism to mark packages as not suitable for an arch?
If m68k should become a release arch again, it should definitely include major
GUI packages like mozilla etc. in there. For the latest round of Mozilla
security builds the m68k build arrived nearly a day after the second-slowest
arch. The same goes for KDE and the like. Noone's going to run Mozilla on m68k
