I'm done arguing this with you.  Quite simply a build that completes just fine 
on the primary arches but fails on a secondary arch is squarely on the 
secondary arch team to investigate.  They can ask for the assistance of the 
package maintainer if they need it.  I'm not about to prevent good builds 
that completed just fine on the primary arches from reaching the public repos 
of said primary arches.  Having a mix of what is in the buildsystem + what is 
pushed only leads to confusion, further complexities with pushing things out, 
cascade problems holding up large sets of packages from going out, all for 
arches that make up <1% of our userbase.  Obviously I'm not going to convince 
you, and you're surely not going to convince me on this matter.
