Stymied, or required to do a bit of extra typing? 'Cause I'm pretty sure the
case where you want to install both archs *should* be the one where extra
typing is required. So, "yum install foo.*" (shades of DOS). Or, if it needs
to be "yum install foo.x86_64 foo.i386" (or "foo foo.i386"), is that really
so bad?
