I don't see any scenario where getting the arch would be tricky, do you
have any in mind?
Even if there is such a case, we have many mirrors that don't support
all arches, so - to avoid problems - we'd have to filter the list to
have only complete mirrors, drastically diminishing its utility,
therefore I think it would be best to ignore the very few - if any -
corner cases in which it's a little harder to get the arch, in the name
of maintained utility.

Thanks a lot anyway!
