Actually, that is experimental code (based on a request from another

people like to see this done always, never, or only when cross-building?

There hasn't been much comment on this.  Since it would be a visible
change for package maintainers, I would appreciate more of a
consensus. Are there any objections to making the workdir always
arch-specific (IOW name-ver-rel.arch)?

I would rather have {build,inst,dist}/<arch> directories inside the
workdir so the same package could build for both x86 and x86_64 in one

That would be inconvenient for the situation where you have to do a new build (and bump the release number) for only one arch. Also, there might be arch-specific patches, requiring arch-specific src and origsrc directories, so you don't really save any disk space by having a common workdir.
