ok, so I think, the i686-only version is the way to go. I uploaded a
first test to mirror.archlinux32.org/archisos/
If you find any bugs, just let me know (frankly, I didn't test these
isos, because I dont have time right now).
Because, I personally like to have one rescue thumb drive for both i686
and x86_64, I try to keep the dual-bootable iso up to date, too. But if
it needs to much time, I might drop that.
