Sorry Frans, but any current use of these packages is well overdue to be
fixed.  Given that kernel-source-2.4.27 is RC-buggy, I'm now working through
getting its reverse-dependency tree removed from testing.

Are there still architectures using 2.4 in d-i as of beta3?  If so, why?

Looking through the d-i sources, I only find references to 2.4 for m68k and
for powerpc/apus; the apus packages aren't in etch, and m68k remains a
non-RC arch, so neither of these seem to be reasons for keeping 2.4 around.
