You do also have the architectures provided to you by QEMU :-) :-)

I have been able to build modular Xorg for Armedslack in QEMU without
having the hardware but when I tried to port Slackware 12.0 to SPARC in
QEMU I found it was way too slow and started looking for some real hardware.

Maybe in the future where we have all kinds of cheap multicore processors
this will not matter much but for the moment limited resources are still some kind of hindrance to realizing the benefits of multi-architecture emulation.

Maybe I should trade in my single-core Athlon system for some serious
quadcore x86_64 chip but I'd rather wait for 16-core Loongson 3 :-).

As Qemu cannot use multicore CPUs (partially due to missing thread safety), yet, you won't benefit from this unless you want to run multiple instances of Qemu in parallel.
