For the record, Sugar runs perfectly fine on ARM, and has for years.  (The
same is true of Gnome.)  ARM is not a problem.  The challenge here is the
slate-style hardware, which is significantly different from the hardware
for which Sugar has been developed.  That hardware would be no less
challenging for us if the CPU were x86.
