I see the point Alan is trying to make, but is this relevant for Gnome
adoption?  I mean, on what machines is Gnome (especially 2.10)
actually usable which are not equipped with a FPU?  

(Honest, I don't know, not trying to pick anybody up.  I just had the
impression that Gnome mostly ran on machines where FPU is a standard,
but I never actually put any thought into it.)
