Yeah, but for a naive (take that however you want) user, it's unpredictable
when multiple architectures will be available for a given package.

I'm not so hung up on this particular point personally, though. I'm just
trying to explain what I think the previous poster meant.

I guess my main complaint boils down to "this behavior seems un-yumlike".
It's an intuitive dislike. I mean, disk space and bandwith are cheap enough
that there's not much of a practical problem. (Except it's annoying when
building software which wants to link against 32-bit stuff just cause hey,
it's there. But that's not yum's fault.)
