Please cut it. The subject is pretty clear: getting rid (or not) of x86.
Keep this pointless discussion on hashes outside this thread. Thanks in

It's not going to happen. I don't have 32bit, I don't run Arch on any
ARM board. I have no way to review if such compatibility change makes
any sense. If ever, we will just give people responsible for ARM port
access to SVN/Git, but just as with my previous comment, this seems
unrelated for now.
