I understand this.
That's why I'm skeptical about it being an adequate replacement for
biarch. [The biarch is of most value at transition time.]
That said, although you call what you have right now "pure64", you do
include some biarch support. It seems to me that with only slightly
more work (and a bit of tolerance for ugliness), you could be providing
a more useful bootstrap biarch.
