Debian isn't pulling i386 -- no way that'll happening. What they're doing is
using utilities/libraries that won't support 386 processors. Yes, that will
be a shame for people still using 80386 machines. It won't affect people
using 80486 or higher.

C'mon Paul -- I *know* I remember you advising someone still running Potato
to upgrade to Woody. The same logic applies to keeping Woody after Sarge is
out (except for those unfortunate souls still using 80386s).
