I think the issue here is that Arch64 started as a completely
independently-run project, separate from "Arch-core".   It was decided
that x86_64 was the "wave of the future", and Arch asked the Arch64
developers to join forces - it seems as though Andreas wants the
original decisions of the Arch64 team to remain honored, even though
they've been "absorbed", so to speak.
