I should dig out my RPI1 and install on it...

I have long wondered how much building for earmv7hf matters, in terms of
performance.  Specifically, given a machine that has a earmv7hf

  would using the v6 packaege build be slower in a measurable sense than
  using the v7 packages?

  Is the v6 package set missing packages compared to v7?

related to:

  Given a RPI3, is there any good reason to prefer v7 vs v6 for userland?

I'm guessing the answer is that it makes sense to use v7 packages on
v7-capable machines, but the answer is not yet in the RPI howto, so I
can add it if there is consensus/rationale.
