I waded though many arch@ archives but couldn't find where I had brought this 
issue up.  I did find one instance where it was discussed prior to the SMPng 
commit back in April/May 2000 (old, yes) where cp@ wanted to drop 386 and 486 
support for 5, and the ideas there were to allow for separate kernels.  At 
this point, I guess I don't care/have enough time to burn on this.  I would 
think you of all people would care about sticking to previously agreed to 
decisions though.
