It appears that there were no major concerns. I will follow up #835148
and request PIE by default for the following architectures.
Should you be a porter for an architecture not listed above and want PIE
by default on your architecture, please follow up on #835148 as well (or
a file a new wishlist bug if #835148 is closed when you do it)
NB: The omission of powerpc was intentional as there were no porters
supporting it during the roll-call.
