We do try to support them, but I don't have any hardware that supports it 
anymore. Got anything you can test with? It *should* still work in 
-current, but I can't say for sure.

APM of course is not supported on amd64, and I wouldn't say plenty of 
machines had buggy ACPI implementations, more like a handful. And we 
should be able to handle most of those with our quirks mechanisms.
