The current x86-64 has both 32-bit and 64-bit "mashed together," so
that
sort of configuration would be more of the same.

Well, it's currently only half-mashed.

In Fedora 12, the i686 and x86-64 rpms are in the same directory, on
the x86-64 DVD ISO.

That's sufficiently mashed for my purposes, but whatever... :)

Look closer. It is only a small subset of the i686 content in the x86_64
repo for multilib purposes.

That's merely a space issue, not any failure to or absence of "mash"


mash is a specific program in this case. It inspects the pkgs to determine which i686 pkgs need to be included in the x86_64 tree.

It's not arbitrary.
