So, when will i get a biarch toolchain in debian ?

The alternative being naturally to maintain a fork in people.debian.org, which
could be done, but will be a mess or whatever.

At least having the stuff in experimental ASAP would be a first step, but i
have not yet gotten any feedback on this, nor any plan to get it implemented
or whatever.

In any case, i do *not* plan to do any further upload of sid kernels without
pure 64bit support.

BTW, it seems that as a result of our little support on this, IBM has
apparently donated a couple of boxes to debian, or at least thought so, who
ended up being the augsbourg university ones. I would love to know who inside
debian was involved in this.
