I sincerely hope that does not ever happen --- or at least not without
replacing PPC with some other big-endian architecture.  It's tough
enough now keeping people on the straight and narrow path about platform
independent coding.  If Fedora ever becomes an only-Intel-matters distro
we are going to lose a lot of credibility and leverage on that point.

I can, and do, and find that attitude one hundred percent unacceptable.
Fix your damn code.
