Bug#514237: debian-cd: Support non-i386 mirrors, and support D-I modules in non-main

Moot points here, as I'm looking into going with Jonathan's latest
patchset anyway.

It's always likely to, though: imagine if we don't have the space for
the two different-arch versions of the last package in the image. The
order that we add things is likely going to affect which one is missed

Personally, I don't care in the slightest. In fact, I'd be surprised
if the tasks affect the source builds at all right now... For
source-only sets, I normally expect them to just be in alphabetical
order. Testing that now.
