The core group of CentOS developers were discussing this last 
week at a planning meeting looking forward to the upstream's 
version 5 product;  I was working with PPC beta, and also was 
setting up a test build environment for Alpha and Sparc.

These first two are however niche architectures at the end of 
the day. If one is planning a production environment, it seems 
counterproductive to rely on an arch which is losing hardware
