A friend of mine uses BeagleBone and he always upgrades the devices to a 
standard Debian distribution.

I don't see why this should not be possible / viable with RPI .

And I suppose there is an aarch64 Debian. (In any case it should be 
possible to build it (a time consuming process ;-) )

So this hold run on a RPI3 for testing purpose.

Supposedly some 64 Bit drivers for certain hardware on the RPI might be 
no yet available. but this should not hamper fpc / Lazarus testing .
