Upon what do you base this upon?  I do not see this myself.  Take
subversion for an example.

  On amd64: subversion-1.3.2-5~bpo1
  On i686: subversion-1.4.2dfsg1-2~bpo.1

And git-core for another example:

  On amd64: git-core-1:
  On i686: git-core-1:

And so forth.  So as far as I can see the amd64 autobuilder is not
building packages for backports.  As an amd64 user I wish there were
some way for me to assist to improve things.  The differences is often

Thanks from me as well.  Regardless of my counter assertion that amd64
is not getting autobuilt I do want to also thank everyone for the work
on the backports.  They have really been useful.
