I see. I'd like to stress that my original claim about 50% is perfectly
valid, and I think that's sufficiently large to demand some action.
It by no means implies that people with true i386's won't be able to
run Debian, it just gives a turbo option to people with pentiums.
In my opinion, there should be some policy on which optimizations to apply
for building packages.

I don't think it has to turn into a flamewar every time somebody brings up
the topic. Take it this way, I've got a Beowulf cluster to play with, and
I can build it!
