I wonder about the same thing.

That seems to suggest that the standard distribution should indeed
provide a four-times fat binary, at least for libpython: AFAIU,
to build extension modules that way, all target architectures must
be supported in all necessary libraries on the build machine (somebody
will surely correct me if that's wrong).
