New submission from Jeroen Ruigrok van der Werven <asmodai at in-nomine.org>:

Currently eggs created for amd64 platforms are called x86_64 in the egg
filename. AMD renamed x86_64 to amd64 and asked people to follow suit.
Also Python uses the amd64 nomenclature:
http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-bugs-list/2006-December/036400.html and

As such, to limit end-user confusion eggs should be named amd64 as well instead
of x86_64.
