With the new --arch param to pacman (in git, I think), we can install
EITHER system from an i686 ISO. I think this almost makes the way of
putting BOTH systems on a multi-arch ISO moot. I mean, we probably
don't even need to ship an x86_64 ISO as one ISO could install both
systems. It'd make a lot of things easier to simply ship the lowest
common denominator, not to mention size
