ppc64 is not currently a candidate for a separate arch, the path to go is a
biarch solution, much like the current amd64 solution in sarge, as word from
the main ppc64 developers is that a pure64 solution will be a measurable
performance hit on power (unlike amd64, which is saddled with a weaker
instruction set to start with).

One could add per-subarch optimized builds and mirrors too though.
