I'm not sure that's true at all. Many of the archs would benefit from
not having to build all the debian packages, particularly gnome and kde.
s390 doesn't even have an x desktop. I know they and some of the other
archs were interested in talking about this.

I believe the RMs want a real solution that doesn't set us so far apart
that it would be trouble to support us.

The real problem has been to figure out what that means and how we're
going to implement it. We need a means for tackling the dependency 
thicket and figuring out what and how it can be trimmed. How to 
actually break the borg into modules.

At the end of the day, we need working code to show that it can be done
reasonably. That's how we got a testing, it's how we'll move on 
(if indeed we do).

I'd love to see a lightweight x desktop for m68k, but don't we already
have some of those packaged? If not, then we should. But first, we need
x working.
