Question-probably naive, but anyway- why don't we keep an 'old kernel' package 
for those with older CPUs?

I don't see that it would need maintenance-that's just what it is-dead weight 
for those who need really old machnes to work. 

Tell me if I'm wrong. But I vote to ditch PAE with th default kernel. Maybe 
have two kernels in the defult iso and some hardware detection in the installer 
to install the right kernel? (IDK if that's possible)
