The idea is to call the multiarch debian architecture powerpc64 though, which
would be in better harmony and less confusing than ppc64. Also, keeping the
ppc64 stuff as Andreas's one-man-fork available to users while at the same
time working on a separate multi-arch solution inside debian should be a good
thing to not get those packages confunded.
