No need to apologize! It's just the truth: ARM is not ready to be a primary 
architecture, and might not even be for years to come. (Just look at build 
times, which are still 2+ times slower than x86, entirely unacceptable! All 
my builds are always blocking on ARM slowness now.) It should never have 
been made primary in the first place, and this ought to be fixed ASAP.
