Hmmm. In other cases where two packages obsolete one installed one, do they
both get installed, or is there some "best fit" attempt?

Conversely, if a package of one arch tries to obsolete a package which
previously had two archs installed, are they both cleaned up? (In previous
versions of yum, I believe only the one matching the new package was
removed. Haven't tested recently.)
