My point is that you're not looking at the whole set of
requirements for OCaml and other existing Debian packages
when you look only at the processor's instruction set.

The way to keep old hardware running is to keep
it running old software. or, if you give me a second
to switch to my Bogart voice, "we will always have 3.11".

According to, someone using a Via C7
should be fine.
