and the problem there is that you're assuming anyone !Debian sees this as a 
problem.  so, once again, do not use the armhf standardization work to 
backdoor multiarch.  if you want to talk about multiarch, then start a new 
thread to do that.

tbh, i thought the ldso discussion was more "we've been talking about this for 
a long time, so let's just go with XXX" and then people moved on to the next 
topic (which was defining exactly what "hard float abi" meant wrt compiler 
flags).  further, it seemed like we had distro representation there, but not 
mainline gcc people.

again, saying "/lib/<tuple>/<ldso>" isn't multiarch is bunk.  but it sounds 
like you're fine with /libhf/, so there isn't anything left to thrash about
