Presumably, install all packages with names starting with foo for either
i386 or i686 (or i586) architecture.

Are you concerned that there might be a package
"foobarin86-5.3-1.fc6.x86_64"?

I guess "." is kind of an unfortunate separator for arch.....


But I'm still in favor of simply documenting what might happen in corner
cases and making the default case be something other than "multilib
pile-on!"
