I could, provided that I see some positive responses from other developers.
When I started maintaining the official RPMs A'rpi, a few other developers

need to download and install yet another package.

I'll look into it.

Because i686 packages will run on all Intel PII-compatibles and all AMD
Athlon-compatibles. Athlon packages will run on all AMD Athlon-compatible
