It doesn't hurt to help distribute the load some, though.  Requiring each
person who makes a change to compile it on every possible arch is not something
that will scale as more and more archs are added.  If a committer can get
someone else to perform some of these test compiles and fix any brokenness that
comes up I think that is adequate.
