The 'man power' appears to be minimal and likely to produce something
useful sometime in the near future, unlike the multiarch stuff.  That's
pretty much the whole point.  Of course, that doesn't even consider the
fact that the 'man power' is volunteer, and not likely to actually be
wasted because the result will be used, probably a fair bit.
