I don't know about *things* that use the link, but *I* certainly do.
It saves me keystrokes.  Nearly every time I visit an ftp site, I type
"bo/binary/something", and when I use a CDROM image of the site, I can
type "bo/b[tab]/something".  Most Debian users have i386 architecture
machines, and I have always figured that was the why the link was
there in the first place.  I would like to see it stay.
