I got the point that there is a high effort to maintain
all the different releases. (lenny_amd64, lenny_i386, squeeze_amd64,
squeeze_i386, hardy_amd64, hardy_i386, karmic_amd64, karmic_i386,
lucid_amd64, lucid_i386, maverick_amd64, maverick_i386)
Obvious the idea to split up the package(s) sounds best to me,
there might be another option. What about have the qt, x and sdl
as recommends and the current recommends as suggests?
