Hello,

  I just file this bug report so we can remember to look at it at some point.

  binary_local-packageslists and chroot_local-packageslists are able to add a pool in the live media. It would be useful if we could add a pool from a foreign architecture, at least I am trying to work out a live media cross enabled.

Best regards,
  -- Hector Oron

sure, do you have any nice idea how to do that? add architecture into
the lists suffix (e.g. foo.amd64.list)?

Sounds about fine, if foo.$arch.list is given then add to APT_OPTIONS a line with "-o Apt::Architecture=$arch" (note, this needs to be run with --download-only flag -already there-).
