Back in time there was also the idea to use this file to indicate security 
support of an arch. The suggestion was to introduce another column, but I 
found that rather horrible.

So a better idea would be to introduce an additional status "security", 
designating "stable with security support".

(Acts in every other respect exactly like "stable".)

What do you think?
