I am more concerned with the embedded systems still being produced,
and the nice IBM servers.

Some people think ppc64 is a useful option, but most of us are perfectly
happy with powerpc with a 64bit kernel.

Not that ppc64 appears to be getting to be a release architecture any
time soon.

I am not a DD, or a DM, but I have certainly helped fix problems for
powerpc, including in language runtimes for languages I don't use.
Unfortunately it seems the upstream for most things don't care much for
anything other than x86 and arm these days which makes it harder for
other architectures to stay working.
