[Slackbuilds-users] [FYI]SlackBuild for python modules should be architecture dependent

As an alternative solution, maybe it would be a good idea for all of the SBo packages to have a default tag that includes the Slackware version (at least for the 64 bit).  So, 
for Slackware64 and
for Slackware 12.2

Could even have
but only the 64 bit distinction is really necessary.

The modified tag for 64 bit would allow the noarch to be pure and hopefully satisfy all camps.
