Yup. I've done things slightly differently for these, but that's basically
it. I've also found a couple of other minor bugs in 0.93 that I'm working
on; more info later...

*grin* Yes, this is going to be a problem. Where the hamm disk sets would
have m68k and i386 on 4 disks (5 with non-free), it looks like for slink
we're going to need 2 common source disks plus 2 (3 with non-free) 
arch-specific binary disks for every arch. <sigh> I'm going to have to
get that 12GB disk soon...
