As the amount of packages that can easily turned into noarch subpackages is 
not that high I was curious where all these possible noarch files are. Then 
I realized that I was already collecting this data[*] and I just have to 
print it out. The result is a list of packages that would be worth splitting 
into an arch dependent and a noarch subpackage (e.g. -data or -common). 
Details are described on.


There also is a list of all x86_64 packages sorted by owner that shows how 
much content is arch dependent and how much is not.

Have fun


[*] Yes, I should finally get my statistics script ready and published.
