We could set that up here, but rather than set up another VM running
a different OS just to support Mailman 3 isn't going to happen. We'll
stick with 2.

Just because there were SPARC servers in 1995 doesn't mean ALL SPARC
servers are from 1995, CZ...these aren't the ones we ran at Digex. ;)
Our T3s and T4s are reasonably new and screaming fast. They'll get
replaced when they're truly obsolete, rather than "salesman obsolete".
That likely means ARM. (does Node.js run on ARM?)
