provided that one does a) ensure the generated config files in config/
are removed in auto/clean, b) the generated config files in config/* are
created in auto/config, and c) one does a lb clean before 'switching'
the architecture, i see no problem in having two archs configured in one
just to be clear: while i keep as described all architectures and
distributions in one single config tree, i do check it out on the buildd
freshly from git every time i want to build it. so, tainting is not so
much of a problem.
otoh, if the config tree is not done well, the result can be that either
the different architectures images are not really aequivalent (same
package selection, etc), or, that the image can actually be built. so,
as long as one makes sure that all the arch conditionals are configured
properly for all architectures aequivalently, the images if built in a
proper environment, will be fine.
