I prefer pure 64-bit to multi-lib.  Perhaps we should follow Debian's  
example, where they make a pure 64-bit build (with symlinks from lib64  
and lib32 to lib) and put any 32-bit compatibility code into /emul/ 
ia32-linux.  That way, 32-bit is segregated from 64-bit and can't  
cause confusion.

I've gone through Onward by hand to build a pure 64-bit system from a  
Debian AMD64 host.  I haven't done much with it other than boot it as  
a VM, but it does work.
