I've been talking to people on and off about this and I think you're
statement elsewhere in this thread hit it right on the nose: it's good
to have a nice mix of 32 and 64 bit as well as LE and BE systems.  So I
think it's important that PPC be a primary arch and package maintainers
are responsible to make sure that it works before any builds are pushed
out to the repos.

PPC is the fastest canary in the cage, if you will. :)
