You've correctly described why it probably won't be useful -- almost
every distribution compiles for ARMv7, including Fedora and Ubuntu,
so our builds won't boot on it at all.

Since you can create ARM binaries on an x86 machine with a cross
compiler, or on the 1.75 itself, the only use case I can think of for
it relating to 1.75 development would have been running our builds.
