[arch-dev-public] x86_64 machines for Arch devs

Hey guys,

I know we all agreed to drop i686 support, but it leaves me with a
small problem -- I'm one of the few devs not yet blessed with a 64 bit
machine. I was thinking maybe we could use the donation funding to buy
x86_64 build boxes for each of us. We've got a lot of donation funding
and the income from Schwag would of course help, but we'd probably
have to do a donation drive to raise about half the funds. It seems
like a good use of the funding to me, and our community is totally
awesome, I'm sure it won't be hard to raise it.

What do you guys think?

In the meantime, I'm going to continue maintaining an i686 repo of my
own for a few weeks, but lets face it: this machine is a dinosaur, its
time to upgrade!
