Given that you don't have direct access to anything other than i386 I suggest 
that we initially only enable it for that platform.

Once it's in main for i386 then we can start looking at other platforms.

Of course if someone who has direct access to another platform wants to 
generate packages for it then that would be great!  They could get support 
for their platform at the same time as i386.
