I doubt it is true those archs are hard-coded in a million places, as it
has already been demonstrated how to run Debian Edu on both arm and
powerpc.  We have few such hardcoded arch entries breaking other archs.
ltsp-arch-debian-edu is not an example of this hard-coding, as it handle
non-x86-arch just fine.  We special case amd64 there, to ensure such
server get a ltsp chroot that can be used by both amd64 and i386
hardware.  It is not hard-coding i386/amd64, as it also work for other
archs, it is a simple arch-specific override.

Happy hacking
