Not _all_ of the pain. A lot of the pain came from making stupid
short-term decisions, like the filecolour hack in RPM which we're
currently referring to. There was never any need for that, except
perhaps as a short-term hack.

Multilib _really_ doesn't need to be as painful as it has been in the
past, if we start thinking about it a little more coherently.
