Why do you care ? Worry about it at the point nobody can remember needing
the support, or when it creates some horrible situation that is painful
to keep supporting and nobody seems to care. We've only recently dropped
80386 support, and we still support MC68000.

Or just wait until 2038 approaches and the 32bit panic stations begins,
then clean out 8)
