Bug#842626: installation-reports: Should warn when installing 32bit on 64bit-capable machine

Package: installation-reports
Severity: wishlist


My coworker installed Debian on an amd64-capable laptop, but happened to
take the 32bit ISO image by mistake, and of course we noticed only after
finishing the installation :)

She was surprised that there was no warning about installing 32bit on
64bit. There could perhaps be for instance a confirm question right
after selecting the language, and implemented in the hw-detect package,
and be taught the same for ppc, mips, etc.
