I have to admit, I strongly disagree with having separate packages for
every flavor of i386 machines.  What about the other architectures as
well?  Should we have versions for every revision of the Alpha?
powerpc too?  this seems like an incredible waste of mirror space &
bandwidth, and it looks like virtually every Developer here thinks
this is a bad idea.  I wonder why that is?
