libxml2-python is required by yum, but that's probably just the comps.xml 
parsing that yum-arch needn't do?

At any rate, my point was that if you limit yourself to just mirrors which
will run yum-arch over the tree once they mirror, you won't even get all the
current Red Hat mirror sites -- some have practical reasons not to (like the
pain of compiling rpm on non-Linux), while some just won't want to have to
run a command over the tree. Mirroring needs to be kept as simple and 
flexible as possible....
