For another data point, I have 122 packages on my Ultra 5. these
including Apache running HTML::Mason (and the many perl modules it
requires), database clients, Mailman (which requires Python) and
Postfix. It's running in a visible and somewhat serious environment as
the public web server for a local user group/professional association.

Other than how long it took to rebuild all the ports (Sparcs suck for
that *grin*), the transition was super smooth and everything is working
fine afterwards.
