I'm not so sure.  Should the architecture name be 'ia32'?  The linux kernel
and other things have normally referred to it as 'i386' (or any of i[3456]86 in
some cases).

Personally, I'd prefer the 'ia32' name, if for no other reason than to avoid
the problems associated with my parenthetical remark in the last paragraph.
