You are correct, and that is the reason I have not sent any of my
patches to the BTS either.  One of the problems was that the biarch
people didn't know what *they* would want down the road either :-)

Now that we have a proposal on the table with real names, pure64 can
adopt those and, excepting gcc and perhaps libc6, submit patches that
would apply equally to both ports.
