As far as I know, that was Goswin's thought; if the AMD64 port maintainers
want to make it a requirement, they're welcome to; but as far as anyone
else cares, they don't need it any more than ia64 did. TTBOMK, anyway.

(The stuff that is a requirement is getting close to being finished,
aiui; so you should be able to get into unstable around the same time
sarge is released I'd imagine)
