GAW: Why would you ever want to do that? It doesn't take up much space (on
GAW: even semi-modern disks :-), and it doesn't take up much time or effort
GAW: to "use" (or not "use", as the case may be).
(Oh, look -- flame bait!)
I am another candidate for being able to pick and choose which architortures
I want on my machine. I don't have that. At the moment, I deal. If it
ever becomes possible, I'd really like to see it happen.
I'm very surprised to see such a return coming from you, Greg -- of all
the people who champion the desire to have a clean hierarchy, I'd think
you'd be one of the most understanding of this issue.
