Yeah, I swapped it over once everything in unstable/i386 was fixed.

Cool. There are a number of other outstanding problems; I've been fixing
them or looking for help with them where possible, but other people
might be in a better position to do this. The ones I can think of are:

  * swisswatch needs a binary NMU on alpha (I've mailed their port
  * rscheme needs fixing generally.
  * gforth won't build on m68k ("Invalid memory address" when it runs
  * xfractint won't build on powerpc.
  * realtimebattle won't build on arm (internal compiler error).
  * A number of other packages need updated binaries.

In these cases, if we can't get binaries up to date, they probably ought
to be removed on the problematic architectures.
