Relatively fat in terms of the number of packages installed and the
fact that the Debian dependencies (i.e. things like coreutils and perl)
remain intact. However, the packages themselves are a lot smaller.

There are only Grip packages for PPC.

That's just a default in the sections listing. Any package available
for armel will be available for all other architectures. As for an
actual list, see:
http://www.emdebian.org/grip/dists/unstable/main/binary-powerpc/

There are also dev/, debug/, doc/ and java/ components. Unlike Debian,
we split packages into more components based on the kind of
binary package concerned with the source remaining in 'main'.
