There is a report on it, but I don't know it offhand. The current idea
I had was that we simply do all the massaging in the archiso hooks.
That is, we create one CD with two different base images and two
kernels. The menu items would indicate i686 or x86_64 kernels, and
would choose the right aufs image for that architecture.

Yes, this effectively doubles the size of these CDs, but I'm not too
sure I want to ship the dual arch CDs regularly. What do you guys
