The only computer where I have left multilib packages installed is my
main workstation, to get 32bit firefox, but in my case too it's the
only thing I wanted... that's the first issue.

The second issue is yum's default behaviour of installing all available
archs for the requested package, which annoys me quite a lot. Today
alone I had to re-run yum quite a few times after wanting to install
some devel packages I needed to phpize some PHP modules... no, I don't
want the 32bit devel package! ;-)

Oh, silly question, but : When installing both firefox packages, is the
32bit version run by default!? If so, how come, and is it the same for
all other packages (I seem to have quite a few installed as both 32 and
64 bit and I'd prefer to be running the native versions) or does
firefox already have some kind of special treatment?
