You confirmed in another mail that you're referring (at least in part)
to the chromium package, and to an apparent decision by Google upstream
to drop 32-bit support in Chrome. (I haven't heard of this elsewhere
AFAIK, but it wouldn't entirely surprise me.)

The version of chromium:i386 in testing is the same as the version of
chromium:amd64 in testing (49.0.2623.87-1), and the chromium binary from
the latter package is timestamped March 9th, so it's less than two weeks

Am I looking in the wrong places, or do we just have significantly
different definitions of "quite a while"?
