Because the packages that used to go in dists/$(dist)/binary-$(arch) are
now all jumbled together in the pool. You can't just exclude by
architecture any more, or indeed by distribution; you've got to parse
Packages files in order to know what you need to mirror, or else you'll
either get far too much or far too little.
