> So IMO it's fine to remove the support.

You are not removing "support". You're just disallowing users to use the Python interpreter - which works perfectly fine on all architectures we have in current and previous releases - on Debian.

A few preprocessor macros plus some lines in a aren't something that would qualify as platform support. There is no architecture-specific code and the Python interpreter is highly portable and just works whereever we build it in Debian (and openSUSE).

I would unterstand the reasoning of such a change if there was a swath of users filing bug reports about s390 and you just don't want to deal with that any longer. But that's not the case as far as I can see.
