'old' architectures do not hinder development - they are separate, and
they have to update their stuff. (and i think the m68k port is used by
many other people and not CS archeologists.) Old drivers are not a true
problem either - if they dont compile that's the problem of the
maintainer. Occasionally old drivers get zapped (mainly when there is a
new replacement driver).
