And might be reasonably be termed "biased". :)  Edits welcome.

As a generic filtering mechanism this is a no-go, doing this breaks multilib as Fedora uses it:

%global _use_internal_dependency_generator 0 \

Multilib-safe filtering mechanism needs to be bolted to the internal dependency generator, patches welcome... The other alternative would be killing the multilib coloring which would "only" require splitting all relevant packages to separate -libs etc to avoid elf32/elf64 binary collisions (which the multilib coloring currently hides)
