Okay, in that case, I strongly disagree. That would be like saying
the efforts to get it working until now are worthless. The individual
behind debian-installer has already kicked out Sven without any
concern for the PowerPC port well being.

Killing the OldWorld subarch in the PowerPC port would simply get Piotr
(I think) and I (surely) not caring anymore about miBoot... After
all, I know how to proceed with it the hard way, so the installation
easiness does not matter to me. It is only more fun for me for it to
become easy. :)

I sincerely hope I will succeed getting an access to the
debian-installer SVN repository to work on miboot targets and on
