Is this a reason not to keep apt?

If so, I fail to see why.  We have a perfectly good alternative that works
for some people, so I think it should be made available.  If you would
like, specify that it's an i386 specific solution.  As for official
support, these platforms didn't have a stable bo released for them.  If
they are running a libc5 hamm that you mentioned, then they are running an
unstable system.

If not, and you were just asking an honest question, then I don't know the
answer.  I only follow x86.  I don't know if the testing group even has
the resources to try it (we are happy to get an x86 laptop).
