It'd be nice to have arch-specific files/directories for the Python wrapper
too, if that's not too much hassle. An arch-specific file that exported an
arch-specific python object that gets attached to the main xc object with
name 'arch' would be kind of neat (so that you get at arch-specific
functions as e.g., xc.arch.alloc_real(...), making the arch-specific calls
immediately obvious).
