I didn't think that was the inference to draw - rather that some of
the packages that you have found to be broken (even perhaps for a very
long time) are only broken on amd64 (or perhaps other ILP64 systems)
and work fine on (at least) 32 bit systems, and so should not be being
considered for removal, even if no-one can be found to fix whatever
problem you are seeing.
