I'm fine with that, I thought that you guys wanted to start doing a lot
more than that.  I would like to note that this isn't exactly something
that i686 could do.  If x86_64 waits for all the bugs from i686 to get
cleaned up, i686 wouldn't have anyone to wait for ;)

No, all you do is not svnmerge trunk into repos/{current, extra}-64 as often.
