Hey, no. I'm not even sure I'd find time (and skills) to contribute.
I know, however, that there have been efforts in that direction by the
GNU/kFreeBSD folks. There has also been work on a GNU/NetBSD port of
Debian (i.e., using NetBSD's libc) in the past.
I believe support for older hardware is an incentive for a GNU/(k)NetBSD
Debian. It might attract other people precisely because of this.
Anyway, this is admittedly very prospective.
