I would love to drop boost on i386, however, it seems like a very
small subset of boost is actually pulled in on i386.

Is it safe for me to reduce boost to the set of packages that are
listed in the first column? Cause then boost can potentially drop
python & mpi libraries on i386, and the openmpi build-dep.

And I guess that will make openmpi / rdma-core / mpi-defaults to drop
out of i386 seed, no? and will allow to drop those deltas?
