    This is such a huge mistake I wish platforms such as powerpc and IA64
    would not make such decisions so lightly.

    The memory wastage is just rediculious.

    I already see several distributions moving to 64K pages for powerpc,
    so I want to nip this in the bud before this monkey-see-monkey-do
    thing gets any more out of hand.
