There is still fedora.us and freshrpms.net for now... and if you scan
the Fedora archives you'll see people have discussed many options
already and made suggestions. Legacy Fedora for one...

Most everything is compiled with arch. for i386 with optimizations for
i686/Athlon/etc. So what's happening is that it's not using anything a
i386 ~doesn't~ have but includes optimizations to be used if the
hardware supports it. It's not
super-custom-always-on-tweaked-to-the-limit but it's also fine for most
everything and perhaps more stable overall.
