they were primarily meant to show other [cruft] occurrences as it is not
trivial to find some if you actively look for them

Exactly. Makes me focus on reporting other bugs first before
investigating these.

I originally implemented this at the point where gcc-X:amd64 had
outdated (and therefore uninstallable) packages that are still built
(and installable) on gcc-X:i386. These needed manual decrufting on the
ftp-master side, but until this happened piuparts was blocking migration
because the weather looked bad, introducing a regression.
Unfortunately gcc was decrufted manually before I could implement and
test exclusion of cruft packages from the package weather result. (I
needed to go through some hoops to finally get [cruft] tags, the patch
series was effectively developed "backwards" and in the end collapsed
nicely to the things I sent)
If you know of a good test case, I could still do the weather part.
Cruft packages usually don't show up on the source report unless they
are still built on some architecture. (And all packages being [cruft]
because of ftbfs as in mod-ghc is boring, britney does not migrate them
