I'm ok with that, given that it can be automatically checked.  We have to watch
any ABI bumps, though.  But they shouldn't happen, given that it doesn't
include libs from BIND.  ;-)

The upload should go through unstable, please ping me after it happened.

ia32-libs-core is a pain, though.  It has a popcon of 0, and I'm pretty sure
that nobody actually tested its operation, not even the maintainers.

I wonder if we should remove any traces of ia64 in the ia32* stuff instead.
