I like the idea, really. But we're seeing serious resistance to the
suggestion that package maintainers should even have to look at _native_
build failures on architectures which used to build, even though such
failures are _often_ indicative of a generic problem and not an
arch-specific problem.

Do you really think we're going to get them to care about cross builds
too? I _did_ care about cross-compilation, and I gave up on it. I really
don't think we have much chance of getting package maintainers (and
upstreams) to handle it. Unfortunately.
