If people will stop making false assertions, I'll stop offering counters
to those assertions.

I believe it's very easy to add bi-arch to the current system, and that
it would be worthwhile adding bi-arch to the current system, but I no
longer believe that bi-arch is a reason to hold up including amd64 in sid.

Bi-arch support is just too easy to add at this point for "adding bi-arch
support" to be a reason to hold back amd64.

I think leaving things the way they are would be a bad idea.
