But 64-bit machines are fast.. :-)

This is ignored by the buildds, until dpkg-gencontrol dies a horrible
death because of it...  Again, not a big deal.

If we put it in PaS, and that day comes, you'll need to request that the
entry be changed in PaS, since the buildd's will steadfastly ignore the
package once it's in PaS.

Given that, if you'd like it in PaS, I'm happy to add it for you.
