MIPS is still relevant on embedded devices (mainly set-top boxes).
It is also a popular platform for IoT projects.

I understand that you don't want to spend time supporting this
architecture, and that is ok. Nobody is proposing here that JSC
developers should spend time maintaining JSC on MIPS.

However, if someone is willing to do the work, I think we should let
them do it and don't actively block it.

Having a buildbot testing JSC on MIPS certainly helps anyone interested
in maintaining this architecture.

And anybody not interested in MIPS, can just ignore this bot.
