I first want to hear from Aaron/other people who are into
traffic/mirror stuff how we will handle the distribution of the images
(i.e. we don't want the entire Arch community to get the images from
build.archlinux.org).  we're currently discussing this in the
(private) arch-dev mailing list.

Well, I'm just the installer guy, I have no knowledge of this stuff.
I read the dual arch thread
and ticket http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/10753
but could not see much testing/feedback.
If you get Thomas' blessing or Aarons, it's fine for me.
Since your dual-netinstall image is only 220MB, I think the "people
will complain about downloadsize" is void and we can ship only
the dual-arch images.
OTOH since it's trivial to release both dual-arch and single-arch
images, we can do that aswel.

will do.
