As I'm actually trying this on one of the laptops on my desk, I'd point
out that this almost certainly requires yum changes to work well.  yum
gets its idea of arch from uname, which reports what the kernel is, not
what the current glibc is.

Not that it's not a good idea - it seems to work surprisingly well - but
it's not turnkey yet.
