Alpha does use "standard" ISA/PCI cards, so you could easily use PC
joysticks and game port cards on an Alpha. I have tested a joystick
hanging off of the soundcard in my Alpha and it worked just great.
Being unfamiliar with jslaunch, what do you mean by "joystick system"?

I would include only those that you know to work for now. Other archs can
try it and, if it works, you can just add them to the list. I mean,
either way that you do it, it's very little work on your end (just editing
the control file to add/delete an arch), so it makes little difference if
you put the working or everything but the proven non-working archs in
