Just FYI, I created several new tracker bugs:

179258 - FE-ExcludeArch-x86
179259 - FE-ExcludeArch-x64
179260 - FE-ExcludeArch-PPC How should they get used? Simple: If you have a packages that uses ExcludeArch or ExclusiveArch to exclude some architectures from the
build you need to file a separate bug for them [*1]. This bug should be
marked as blocking the corresponding tracker bug(s) listed above -- this
simplifies tracking such issues for other people interested in these
archs that might want to take a look into the problem and fix it.

What if the ExclusiveArch is not a bug but a feature, for example say a userspace support tools for certain hardware only found on certain archs? Then there is no problem to fix, should one then still file bugs?
