Is it necessary? That's 56 packages (8 architectures x 7), a lot
of disk space on mirrors. We currently have two in the archive. 
Why create 53 packages if no one's interested in them? I have no
objections to the creation of a new package if someone's interested,
but I'd prefer not to see many large packages created if no one's going
to use them.
