«For wheezy» is operative in my statement.  hurd is not a wheezy release
architecture, and it's actually not even part of Debian any longer any
more than HPPA or AVR32 is.  Making changes for such architectures, when
we're approaching a freeze, is pretty high on my «stuff I'm not going to
spend time on» list.
