We have ~6 active (pushing it) maintainers for m68k, other non-i386
architectures have a similar number *or less*, just how many packages
do you expect to have "architecture maintainers" for?  I say again,
it's not workable.

Read what I wrote.  I said it would break *with* auto-compilation,
since then there are no architecture maintainers any more.

(Assuming of course auto-compilation ever takes of)
