IIRC there are two messages sent: one when the update is submitted
(state is changed to MODIFIED) and one when it is pushed (state is
changed to ON_QA).

To go back to the original question - I don't believe you can split an
update like that with the bodhi client. But you can do it with koji:
'koji download-build --arch=x86_64 --arch=noarch (build ID)' is what I
usually use. Change x86_64 to i686 if appropriate, obviously. Adding
--arch=noarch makes sure you get any noarch subpackages. I think, with
recent koji versions, you can substitute a NEVR for the koji build ID,
which saves you having to go and find the build ID.
