I am not forgetting that, all I said was that I just don't think we
should pile every change to Fedora that could ever be useful on
embedded targets together into one patch repository and then present
that as a fait accomplis 'Fedora ARM patch set'.

When the ARM dust settles and people start spending effort on trying
to make Fedora more cross-friendly, I'll certainly be contributing to
that effort, but as I said, there's still a possibility that it turns
out that this is not realistically doable without making life hard
for everyone else, in which case part(s) of that effort might have to
be maintained externally.  "We'll see."
