My understanding was that you'd get a warning about it but the
application would still *run*, at least.  If it really won't run then we
should see if there's a way to make it so that it will run, but with a
warning.  It doesn't seem like it'd be all that difficult to me...  Of
course, I've heard that taking Debian binaries to other distros doesn't
work alot of the time anyway.
