Yeah. Maintainers, if you get delays on arch-related bugs it's often
because of pain like this.

And this is even worse. Please check things with repoman before filing
bugs. You can even write automated scripts at least for the "check
whether we got all deps right" part.

It's trivial to set up x86 chroot on amd64 box, so I can't imagine
what's preventing people from creating such chroot, doing the testing
and keywording themselves.
