I hate this. It means we have to work out when to stop, which is by no
means entirely obvious.

One thing that's not been addressed: how does this work across multiple
repositories? We probably want a way of letting supplemental
repositories define their own profile bits (defaults, suboptions etc)
in a way that meshes nicely with the main profile.

Just have the mangler look both in arbor/profiles/foo/bar and
supplemental/profiles/foo/bar when it's using a profile that mentions
"foo/bar" as its path thing?
