Although given Pi 3s are arm64 but Raspbian is still armv6hf I guess we would need a build for a number of archs (armv6hf, armv7, arm64) depending on what OS people are running.

Ouch. I didn't realize raspbian was still armv6hf, although it makes 
sense for older hardware. That thickens the plot a bit. I'd certainly 
settle for an arm64-only build of the LC engine, but shoehorning it into 
an arm6hf os seems dicey.
