I'm rather indifferent, though I expect that packages build on my
architecture (x86_64), which is not the case for ARM-only packages.

That said, I wonder why Arch Linux ARM, which *is* a different project,
doesn't provide its own AUR? Wouldn't that be a solution for ARM-only
packages? And perhaps providing a link to "our" AUR (or even an iframe)
for packages that build also on i686/x86_64? Just a thought.
