that is right, yes.
note that, due to lack of time, nobody has yet investigated the proper
things needed to make the medias bootable for non-i386/non-amd64. means,
we just need to figure out from debian-cd how the powerpc isos are
made bootable. the rest of make-live is platform independent anyway.

well, multi-arch is for people wanting to create an image containing
different live-systems for different architectures on the very same
medium, e.g. a cd with amd64, i386 and powerpc live system on it.
that is quite tricky anyway and not supported by make-live for the
moment, so don't be frightened by that.
