+Section-Based Solution
+A way to avoid having to modify opkg is to separate packages into archive
+sections by package type, e.g.: `bin`, `lib`, `dev`, `dbg`, and `share`.
+opkbuild could possibly automatically generate a correct `Section` control field
+by package name for many packages.
+prokit would add feed lists for the native-architecture `bin` and `lib`
+sections, and users would have to enable other feed lists themselves (e.g. to
+add a foreign architecture's `lib` and `dev` feeds to cross-build packages.
