While I can't speak for anyone else, this sort of change has the potential
to screw a _lot_ of people if not done carefully, something that I'm sure
is not lost on the folks that maintain the SPARC port.  It seems to me
that the amount of hostility created by making this move could easily be
greater than that created by leaving things alone...  (Users -- can't live
