To add a bit more observation in this area...

When doing a 'yum groupinstall "foo bar", some of the groups do pull
i386 packages.  Again, this is on a pure x86_64 system.

I will stop this type of test unless there is something else I need to
try out.  At lease there was some improvement with the current version
of yum.
