Installing both arches is asking for a great deal of trouble with

Unfortunately, the default Fedora and RHEL configuration do the
asking. (And
yum installs all archs by default.)

you can choose an arch, though.

specifying arches in yum is supported and if you really don't want the
other arch add excludes int your yum.conf.

works just fine.


So why isn't a single arch, with appropriate excludes, the default
configuration for yum?

That's not the configuration the various PTB at fedora have preferred.
They want multilib to work by default.


And how are FC buildroot's set up, single arch or not?

If FC build root's are single arch, I suggest that you should think seriously about
changing yum's default configgery. What's good for the goose ...

And if FC build root's are not single arch, well, that was a special sort of pain fixing
package builds, wasn't it? Was it worth the effort?
