Been there, done that occasionally.  Scenarios like that just don't happen to 
be part of what I meant by "generally".

But I'd have nothing against "purifying" x86_64 repos and instructing people 
who need something from ix86 repos to enable them as well.  I suppose this is 
something PackageKit could even suggest on demand.  Anyway I also suppose that 
if it was this simple, it would have been done already.
