Yes, I know. But from my experiences with the GNOME packages I know that
a lot of recent software isn't tested with anything but Linux i386. So
there is no guarante that stuff in "share" really belongs there.

But because there is obviously a public demand for such an option it
should be added. But there should be a warning that it might not
work for all packages.
