Please don't. Thats just creates extra works and it looks very much
like amd64 will persists. From what I gathered all but two people
agreed to keep amd64 so far and those two just couldn't be reached so

Changing the arch means we have to patch it back in and then later
remove the patch when you revert the removal or change to the final
arch. Thats just extra work for all of us.
