ok, but does a TL user really want to know whether an internally used
list was empty or not? IMHO that's a fact only TL developers should
care about, thus debug() seems more appropriate to me than tlwarn().

Hmm, adding an "unknown" architecture to the list seems to be kind of a
hack to me, since (at least if I read the code correctly...) nothing in
tlmgr and install-tl depend on the `available_architectures' setting not
But I just learned about the -custom-bin option to install-tl, maybe
that's what I need. I'll try it ASAP.
This email fills a much-needed gap in the archives.
