I agree. It's become quite evident that Debian is barely able to make
releases at all with the status quo. And, given a choice between having
no stable releases at all and having stable releases of a significantly
reduced number of arches, I'd gladly choose the latter.
What baffles me is why so many seem to miss this point and instead have
decided to turn it into a religious flame war.
Society is never going to make any progress until we all learn to
pretend to like each other.
