Me in contrast, I'm (very) likely to use it.

OK, maybe we can agree on this:
It is necessary to have _a_ 64bit port in Debian and it should be
included in Sarge if at all possible.
Additionally it is necessary that we build this port in a way that
we don't block the paths to a simple migration to a biarch ports
from the 64bit pure port.
I think this is what most pure 64bit protagonists don't like to
think about because it makes things much more complicated for them.
