Bug Description

As we move forward with plans to pool buildds, we'd like to be able to make all x86 buildds (amd64, i386, lpia) arch-agnostic. This would involve a bit of magic on the master side to do slightly more intelligent scoring and decide which jobs to dispatch first (so, for instance, we don't clog up the entire x86 pool with amd64 builds and stall i386 and lpia), and also logic in the master to pass architecture to the slave in extra_args.

On my side, the slave will need to deal with the arch being passed in extr_args and convert itself to the appropriate architecture for each build, which I shouldn't have too many problems doing, but there looks to be a fair number of server-side snafus to worry about here before we can test it in any meaningful way.
