I don't really think it makes sense for end users, as we would 
need to ship the respective standard libraries and a way to 
select between cross-compilation targets as well.

That being said, purely from a "marketing" perspective it might 
be nice to increase visibility for ARM support in LDC. (Users 
might read the -help output or just try to specify a target 

The primary motivation behind shipping host-only releases was 
binary size - have you checked recently how the two build compare?
