You quoted a loooong text containing several links.  I guess you mean 
the link in the section you emphasized:


No, I did not overlook that link - and in fact I thought you did, 
because it points to a mail with the title "Dropping support for the 
smallest armel machines" which discusses specifically the iop32x, ixp4xx 
and orion5x kernel flavors.

Dreamplug uses kernel flavor kirkwood.

I don't know which kernel flavor Raspberry Pi uses - if any flavor 
supported by Debian at all.

Do anyone actually use Debian (instead of the unofficial fork optimized 
for ARMv6) for Raspberry Pi?

Anyone has some measurements on running either system on Raspberry Pi?
