Just for the record, I think sparc is (at least currently) quite
a good example. As old ultrasparcs are often around and basicly
unbreakable (at least those before pci was included), they are
quite a nice thing to run as servers. (Thus I guess most of them
run stable). Thus security-updates and stable releases are
the essence of supporting such architectures. (Though many mirrors
might not be so important, as users normaly do a mirror themselves
and there is no need to reinstall them).
And when support for cheap reliable servers gets missing, though is
usability on clients.
Though when sarge is finaly released, the situation might have changed.
(Publishing calls for flamewars when a release might be near is really
no way to get it this year...)
