I do read pacman-dev on occasion, but not regularly, and I don't follow
each patch thread or new feature. I heard that the Architecture option
was coming, but was never too concerned with the details (just random
happiness about it) - I didn't even know it would be an option, but
thought it was just default behaviour.
I even discussed the issue with Xavier I think, maybe it was Allan, it's
too long ago.

If you read my emails, you will see that I did not complain a single
time, but rather wanted to know what the reasoning behind this decision
was (which I'd still like to know btw).

And while I think that this should be changed to the way I suggested
(which would be a trivial change), for the reasons I posted, I can live
with it either way.
