I think in the glorious cross future, when our comrades have made all
upstream distributions cross friendly, cross will be normal, and
packages that aren't cross buildable will be viewed as deficient, just
like upstream packages that fail with -j are considered broken.

So I prefer a variable that indicates "cross is broken", defaulting to

It may be easier and cleaner to try cross, and put those jobs on a queue
to be done native, than to try to mark all packages.

It would also be cool to compare native and cross versions of the same
package to see if they are the same
