    The main objection last time was that it was a bit too late in the
    release schedule.

    I can't remember anyone really questioning the basic feature itself.

    ia64 is interested (but no code so far) I talked to DaveM and he seems to be
    interested for sparc too. I would expect other server architectures to
    eventually use it as they get around to writing the necessary architecture
    specific glue.
