I kind of resent that affirmation.

Not even questioning its grounds, I'm sure we don't decide to evict an
architecture simply based on doubt, and uncertainty? hppa doesn't have
any major flaw we're aware of, it has porters dedicated to maintaining
it and it keeps up with the archive (99.9% of lenny is built on

I'll just assume this was the expression of your personal opinion, and
I'll state mine which is pretty much opposed to what you suggest. In
the end I'm sure any decision will be taken based on facts, which is
fine with me.
