The stable RM has already vetoed releasing pure64 with stable R1 even
if that comes with near 0 changes.

For multiarch we are talking about 2000 library source packages being
drastically changed, ~2000-6000 new binary packages per arch and about
20000 new packages for amd64. Not to mention drastic changes to the
glibc, gcc, binutils, dpkg, apt, aptitude, dselect.

Forget it. Never ever in a stable release.
