Ok, I think I understand. Suppose that we have an arch that does have
enough download share, and meets every requirement but the existence

Who's downloading it, if there's no hardware to run it on?
All the stuff is on scc; how do we transfer it back? Will it be easy,
or a major obstacle?
Stuff'll be transferred from scc to ftp.d.o once it gets enough mirror
usage; that's awkward, and will probably be done in daily, half-gig
stages over two weeks or so, but it's not a major obstacle. There's no
indication that it will actually happen though; amd64'll probably just
be assumed to be popular enough as soon as it's in the archive, and as
far as other architectures are concerned, even powerpc isn't remotely
near popular enough to qualify.
