Hopefully as few as possible, since every extra profile means more
maintenance. On the other hand, on Exherbo profiles don't need to be in
arbor, so if anyone doesn't like how we handle them, they can keep
profiles in their own repos, should they want to...

When you use a distro as configurable & flexible as Exherbo, or Gentoo,
expecting the defaults to be exactly what you want is silly though. :)
