I believe that new stable name is 'powerpc'.  Early binaries for the
PowerPC architecture were called 'ppc'.  I don't know why but this
has changed - I even would prefer 'ppc' before 'powerpc' but I also
like to have Debian consistant.  So if the architecture name was
changed, the corresponding list should be changed, too.

Vincent, please correct me if I'm wrong.
