no it will be sfp only
we build our armhfp rpms for armv7 which means they wont run on the
raspberry pi as it is armv6 while armv6 has a floating point unit it is
also not compatable. armv6 has a v2 vfp and armv7 has a v3 vfp. to
build a compatable hfp distro we would need to recompile everything and
have a 3rd set of base arches, its really not a very practical option.
other than the pi the only other devices that are v6 are phones and the
via APC. while i expect there will be quite a few pis out there its
not likely to be a long term sustainable port.
