This kind of bug is probably of interest to all multiarch repo
maintainers, Ccing repo-coord.

The reason for the bug above is that I am placing all i386 rpms into
the x86_64 repo as well. yum (and perhaps up2date?) always installs
both rpms if not explicitely told the arch.
Probably yum's behaviour is correct, the assumption is that a x86_64
repo only contains those compatibility packages that are really
required. If you need more, you can still include an i386 repo
So perhaps we should carefully decide which i386 packages to add to
x86_64 repos? It would be interesting to know how Red Hat decided
which packages to offer as i386 compatibility packages. Probably all
openoffice depends on, but perhaps there are more.
