Having looked at mash source yesterday, it's pretty easy to see where this 
wish comes from :)

Just wondering whether multilib should really have its own tag, or would 
this need be better served with a more general purpose tag, perhaps just 
an informational string array tag where distros can stuff whatever 
keywords they want for their compose tools and such?
