...and as the proposal/fiat/whatever-it-is specifies that there
will be no testing for the lowlies it makes any server-use of 
sparcs, mipses, alphas or s390s moot. if no releases to base 
your environment on are available, then you need at least
some resemblence of "time tested" packages to consider running 
stuff on a server.
