What is not clear in the “I object to this patch as is” sentence?

I fail to see the point in migrating bonobo to multi-arch if the
resulting packages only work for one architecture. You are going to
achieve zilch.

I agree it would be nice to have it in wheezy but it is non-trivial work
and low on my to-do list compared to polishing GNOME 3.4.
