Well, I doubt they wanted to be caught by surprise and have nothing
ready if we decided not to allow support requests for arch32...

But if we are willing to allow arch32 to be hosted under our umbrella,
the presence of separate infrastructure should not IMHO cause us to go
back on that and therefore cause additional fragmentation that we were
initially okay with avoiding.
