I fully agree on dropping support for devices with 4M of flash memory.

Althought I personaly don't own 8/32M device, I can very well imagine, that
OpenWrt without LuCi is still somehow usable on such devices, so I'm wondering
what it would mean to retain support for such devices - maintainer(s) willing
to spend time on this devices, adding corresponding tiny targets?

Would it be possible to get some download stats for release/snapshot images,
so we can get some rough numbers about popularity of devices in the wild?
