This one seems to come up a lot.  Should this be the default, or the 
default on all non-i386 platforms?

A year ago, it was reasonable to assume that anyone with non-i386 hardware 
knew enough to find this trick.  I don't think this assumption is true 
now; my neighbor's 14-year-old son has a x86_64 laptop and claims to
never have heard of AMD.
