Even if you only want to look at headless armel machines, webkit is
still useful in backend processing (e.g. server-side work) via tools
like webkit2pdf.

If there's a problem with the buildd's for armel, can we clarify what
the specific problem is and try to get more hardware resources thrown at
it?  debian does have some funds, and this is a classic example of what
we should be using them for.
