There's no major difference between the x86 builds and the ARM builds
other than architecture. If it's a simple python based Activity
there's very little difference between the two and if it runs on one
it will run on the other.

In terms of VM builds the Sugar on a Stick v7 (SoaS) Live Image builds
are very similar to what will eventually become the 12.1.0 release and
there's nightly composes built [1] from the development tree that run
perfectly in a VM environment. If there's anything in particular you
feel you need added to those it can be considered for inclusion.
