(Off-topic, but anyway...)

Having a mipsel machine would help with debugging many things as
well. For example, the most recent are:

lam FTBFSing on mipsel due to a gcc bug:

lapack FTBFSing on mips due to a mysterious reason:

If I get enough money later in life, I'm definitely buying one of
these machines, _just_ for testing out stuff and doing a dput/dupload
of packages built on them. Would look awesome to stand apart with a
mips(el) or s390 upload, when others are doing only
source+{i386,amd64}. :-)
