If there is nobody around for that secondary arch to investigate why the build 
failed on that secondary arch, does that secondary arch need to continue 
existing?  It is entirely up to the community wanting to support $ARCH to be 
on the hook to fix problems that arise in $ARCH.  They should not just pass 
that off on the package maintainer if said package maintainer isn't part of 
the $ARCH movement already.
