So you would suggest to be like Ubuntu and say "we can not be bothered
to support any minority architectures anymore". This effectively
disbands all architecture teams except AMD64 and X86; it should be
subject to the same scrutiny (I suggest a council vote) as a GLEP or
EAPI change.
Personally I would like to hear stronger reasons then "it inconveniences
me when a bug I file is open longer then a month" to destroy the current
diversity of supported architectures (be it PowerPC or a prefix
installation on OS X).
