Oh I see, glad we sorted out that confusion then (I thought you were referring to the Deb maintainers for a moment there).

In that case then, to answer your original question, I can see no reason why not in the long term. But first and foremost, I would have thought that the initial goals would be to first get it running with gcc-4.4 (if ever) and gcc-4.5. Then start expanding to other areas for a short while.

However, I certainly do not dictate the direction of upstream. I merely package and see over fix arch specific bugs that arise.
