Can we agree that needs to happen? If so, I'll happily actually get
involved in implementing a fix, as I've said to these folks in face to
face conversations about multilib before!

Why don't we just install 64 bit packages (on x86-64)[1]? I've been running Fedora 7 & 8 systems like this for ages without any problems. I can't see why it isn't the default, with kludges only for the people who want 32 bit packages on their shiny 64 bit processor.


[1] Or just 32 bit packages on ppc64.
