This has been the de facto truth for years.  i386 is mostly only
supported by virtue of sharing code with amd64.  There are efforts to
promote arm64 to Tier 1, but it isn't there yet.  Power8+ might be
another good alternative Tier 1 candidate eventually.  None have
anything like the developer popularity that amd64 enjoys.
