Hrm, interesting scenario, i just don't see the profile as a scripting

Can you give me a package/real-world situation where we would need this?

I would like to ditch the hole loop idea for now, as the first profile
will be LFS and it doesn't need it (first time around it's only proof of
concept anyways, lots of things to work out), allthough keep it on the
TODO for further discussion and looking into.
