Er, the demand for powerpc64 userland support did not come from the release
team; and the problems with building powerpc64 binary packages on a powerpc
system aren't specific to multiarch (obviously -- since multiarch hasn't
actually happened yet, and we've been having problems building glibc on
voltaire since last year).  Multiarch just happens to be (IMHO) the best
technical approach to building extra packages for targets such as ppc64.
