similar but different, right :)

yea, unfortunately such a chroot needs quite some hdd space.

no, actually i wanted to say first how great this is what you have 
made, but forgot. it is for sure a great help. 

i am on the road with my 64bit laptop and thats why i can usually do 
64bit pkgs quite quickly but lag behind in i686 atm.

no need to make you additional work. it is nothing really urgent. and 
anyway we are a quite big team so its not really a problem at all. 
i'm actually impressed how load-share simply works. its the small 
things that happen in the back that make us after all (this <insert 
slang word here> discussions) still a great team! (and this without 
drinking any ethanol containing beverages)

after all, i need to get a bigger harddrive anyway.
