Is there some obstacle to integrating it further with makepkg? I think 
everyone will use it when it's as easy to use as makepkg. It doesn't 
seem like this should be unattainable.

It would be great to be able to do a make_arch_chroots and have it make 
chroots for both architectures and then do a makepkg -c or something, to 
tell it to make in the chroot.
