Isn't this codified though, rather than through a package list
containing fully qualified packages with arches? IMO it'd be best in the
longer term if the only thing Anaconda needed to have were a list of
packages with arches rather than assuming any such logic. I see why it's
not that easy today, but if it didn't need to handle ordering of install
for multilib implementation, then I think it could be a lot simpler.
