I'd heard that, and was somewhat concerned about whether that'd block
multiarch for yet another release cycle; I'm glad to hear it isn't.
One possibility that occurred to me is adding a Pre-Depends on a new package
("multiarch-enabler", perhaps) which is arch:any and just contains this
Am I right in thinking that (probably only needed for the native architecture,
even) would be enough to "bootstrap" support for the multiarch paths in the
native architecture's linker far enough to perform the upgrade? A future
libc6 could even Replace it or something.
(It'd be a bit subtle by being transitively Essential, though.)
