[arch-ports] dual-iso

Hi i686-fans,

to not loose any potential new i686-users, I moved on by forking archiso
and generating a current dual-bootable iso. Currently it resides at
https://eckner.net/archlinux-2017.03.25-dual.iso, but maybe somewhen in
the future we can move it to some more official place ;-)
The source of archiso32 resides at github: github.com/archlinux32/archiso32.

I stumbled upon one question:
Is it desirable to have the iso dual bootable (i686 and x86_64) or do we
want a solely i686-iso?
The benefit of a i686-only-iso would be, that it'd fit on a cd. The
benefit of a dual-bootable one would be, that we could use archiso32 as
it is right now and that you can boot any machine (32 or 64 bits) with
this - obviously.
Any comments are appreciated.
