Are you trolling?

Sarge is not even out, so how could we "support" amd64? I don't think
anybody remotely sane would expect us to officially release an amd64
port before sarge.

And as we will be burning CDs for the other ports anyway, why not for
amd64 as well? True-64bit seems to be in a good enough shape that it
might work out with d-i until then. And pretty much the only thing
missing is a place on ftp.debian.org, but there is an repository on
alioth anyway. So I don't see where we 'fail to support AMD64 natively'.
