[LLVMdev] is anyone using the sparc backend?

But these targets often provide very valuable "live" documentation! 
Especially since the LLVM documentation does not provide a complete 
overview of features at all. If you remove them from the master, they 
should be available for reference somewhere else. I particularly object 
to the removal of sparc, which uses a lot of features and is a very 
important backend reference.
