I fear I must agree with Luca here. Some architectures break with ease 
and we do not have good development machines for all architectures.

A token problem child is sparc. Before  came along 
for a long long time there was no machine available. And some build 
problems only seem to happen on the buildd machines :-(.

In fact I was certain I had created a bug asking for the removal of all 
unsupported architectures from testing, but I cannot find this bug now. :-(

I'll wait until the end of May. Any architectures not uploaded by 
someone else will get removed, ok?

Groetjes, Peter
