Supposedly it can run one of the currently-stock Debian armel kernels,
but it won't make best use of the floating point hardware.

I haven't tried it yet, but I intend to soon.
I've also seen quite a bit of discussion at various times about what it
would take to properly support Raspberry Pi in Debian. The persistent
need for a binary blob to boot seems problematic to me, but it's likely
something that could be finessed in the installer similarly to how we
currently handle user-supplied binary driver modules?
