If qreal is float on armhf and key software fails in that configuration 
then canonical have to fix it (ubuntu are usually either very close to 
or ahead of debian on key software)

Afaict neither armel or sh4 has anything like the level of "corporate 
support" that armhf gets from canonical.

The problem is this is going to have a massive affect on ABI which implies:

1: changing the descision later would mean a soname change
2: if debian make a different descision from other distros we will be 
binary incompatible.
