Yeah, I've done that in some setups but I was talking about purifying the
_repos_ above; that setting doesn't affect them, e.g. it doesn't make the
metadata to be downloaded any smaller.  (As said, not that I think it's a big
general issue at all, but just that I'd personally have nothing against if it
would be "fixed" nevertheless.)

One way to make this smaller (without any overlap) would be to split the
current two (i386 and x86_64) repos into three: i386-common, i386,
x86_64.  For an i386 system, you use i386 and i386-common, for a
multilib x86_64 system you use x86_64 and i386-common, and for a pure
x86_64 system you use just x86_64.

I don't know if it is worth the trouble though.

and then you have to do that as well for updates. :(
