I say go for core-dual + netinstall-dual. It makes most sense to me and
would be awesome for what I usually use it for (jumpstart some old
computers that could do i686 at best but also install x86_64 on my
machines). We would be able to cut the netinstall-dual under 200M with
kernel 2.6.34 as we'll get squashfs lzma support.
I'd also like to say that somehow I'm not comfortable with your
archiso2dual script. It is a whole mkarchiso script which violates my
mind model of Don't-Repeat-Yourself. Any chance this could just be a
shell script called by the Makefile? That way, it would be config
specific (as it should) instead of being available system wide.
Good work with the TODO and the ISOs :).
