Quoting myself (do I need a canned response for this? ;-):
"I think it's safe to assume no one still runs a.out binaries on m68k."

Of course, m68k is not encumbered by a.out Netscape binaries, unlike
ia32 and alpha ;-)

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
