This was one of the points raised by FESCo yesterday, and it's a fine 
question that we'll be answering better, elsewhere, in due course.  That 
said, where does this question lead?  If we explain what we're trying to 
get to, will it somehow overcome the objections raised such as build 
system performance?  For the sake of coherent discussion, let's assume 
that we have good reasons why we want to move to primary, and we can 
keep the subject on what the requirements are for doing so.  The topic 
at hand isn't even ARM specific, it's just been prompted by us ARM 
aficionados.  Again, I understand that there do need to be good reasons, 
that's just not the subject of this particular thread.  So, other than 
build system performance, what are the requirements you'd like to see met?
