Well, I've noticed that, and I still wonder who asked for its removal.  I do
not recall any mail about this issue, I can find no ftp.d.o bugreport, and
there was no open RC bug on this package.

I'm quite annoyed that this now becomes an RC issue for bigloo itself.
Especially since the bigloo build issue on m68k is preventing a new skribe
to enter sarge (the mips issue is due to bigloo being yet again autobuilt on
"reconfig", which is known to fail most of the time, and the mipsel failure
is an obvious chroot breakage).

Release people, would it be possible to get an exemption for the support of
bigloo on m68k for sarge ?  Only skribe build-depends on it currently (and
it is quite unlikely IMHO that anyone uses bigloo on this arch, but I
suspect this one argument would be disregarded ;).
