With proposed fix by setting hostArchitectures="x86_x64" if installer contains x64 binaries, it will be installable on x64 Mac and will require Rosetta 2 on arm Mac. hostArchitectures will be set to arm64 if installer contain aarch64 binaries and will gave error when run on x64 Mac and will be installable on arm Mac without triggering installation of Rosetta 2.
The fix looks good. Would it be feasible to include an automated test for this?
