One thing that probably should be considered is the fate of the Adamantix 
distribution.  The above URL seems to be the only current information 
available on the web about it.  It seems that the only current positive 
result from that project is the paxtest package which is in Debian (which 
incidentally is i386 specific).  I expect that the same amount of effort 
could have yielded better results if applied within the scope of Debian.
