IMO here it is even a worse stance, since we already have the desired
fix for amd64, i386, m68k, mips, vax, and hppa. It would be more like:
"it will work on NetBSD, except for sh3, sparc, and sparc64 ports
because we refuse to compromise. And on powerpc and alpha it will work
but with different interfaces". 

We are supposed to focus on portability, it is really weird to argue
that a feature should have a MI interface.
