I guess it is a possibility, I suppose new installs on i486 and i586
class machines are likely to be a dying breed and there are other images
which contain that kernel for those occasions. (although I guess the
same rationale could be applied to having i386 at all when amd64 is on
the image too ;-) )

Does anyone else have an opinion?
