The name arm32 was chosen originally as only ARM processors capable of and
running in 32 bit mode are supported. It was decided that supporting the
older 26 bit mode processors was going to entail a lot of extra work and
that it would be simpler to keep it separate i.e. arm26
A number of folks expressed interest in working on a port to the 26 bit
CPU but nothing has ever come of that although I do still get occaisonal
enquiries about doing it.
