Can anyone please explain why this architecture is named hurd-i386

because dpkg-architecture has a line like this:
older dpkg (of sarge age) was more flexible, so likely the
hurd naming decission was not done because of dpkg-architecture,
but rather the other way around.
That's weird, naming a architecure because of a seemingly random
choice made in a script. But OK, that's fair enough...
I am adding some additional archs to my local installation like i386-uclibc,
which makes hurd-i386 an exception to the rule of having the CPU arch first
and the OS name the next.
