+1 to abandoning i486 in current state (keeping last packages on FTP).

Do you think there is anyone using these CPUs under PLD now? I've got
such systems, but haven't powered them up since years... I guess current
i686 users (like me) have other reasons to keep 32-bit system than 32-bit CPU
(like binary/legacy software).

So how about replacing i486 with i786?
