I'd rather peg to a release; I'd assume we'd want to truncate i386 at
the time of a release, instead of somewhere between two releases.
Since release dates can be a little floaty, that's easier to manage.

I don't know what the usage ratio of i386-only machines is at this
point; I'd feel more confident if I knew the impact, but there's no
way to find that out.

#2 (Or Sam's #3) appeals to me just because I've wanted something that
could be called a long-term support release for a while.  A
disadvantage of x86_64 is no linuxlator support, but keeping i386
around isn't going to solve that problem.
