Well, basically adding more manpower is just the same scalability issue as
machines, but with a way, way limited resource named manpower. ;-) 

But yes, I basically agree. My point was, though, to invest the manpower
where it makes more sense, not in trying to solve bugs in packages that are
not going to be used at all. 

A small set of core packages and a set of "other" packages, which can be built on
a best effort base, would make sense to me. 

Getting a multiarch approach of m68k/coldfire would be nice, indeed, but
IIRC there were some problems with that?
