Well skipping i386 support doesn't necessarily mean that Linux 2.2. will
be skipped. If Linux 2.6. is considered stable and get's included in
sarge it would be resoanble to discuss Linux 2.2. again but that's not
a topic ATM I think.
One thing I haven't looked into is the test if it's possible to compile
Linux 2.2. with gcc 3.x. If you cannot compile Linux 2.2. with the
default gcc release for sarge then it would be somewhat braindead to
build a Linux 2.2. based installation.
