I believe iop13xx were mostly Intel dev boards.  I'm not aware of any
major devices based on iop33x.

As Arnd points out, Debian used to have support for various iop32x
devices.  While Debian hasn't supported iop32x in a number of years,
these devices are still usable and in use (RMK being a prime example).

So I think it's safe to drop iop33x/iop13xx while retaining support
for iop32x.

As I was looking at my email archives, I saw an email from Peter
Teichmann who was working on an iop33x based platform (around 2009) so
I've copied him as well.
