The difference is not going to magically disappear in FC5, although it 
could be done in some future repoquery version. I've been hesitant about 
changing it to require those \n's because 99% of the time you actually 
*want* the damn newline there.

But back to the question at hand - both yum and repoquery list the 
architecture by default unlike rpm, wasn't that what you wanted in the 
first place?
