RE: amd64 and dpkg and so

They won't always conflict, most notably in the case of libraries.  64-bit libraries are in /usr/lib64 and 32-bit libraries are in /usr/lib.  ...but there will certainly be some conflicts.  For most applications, there's no reason to have both installed at once unless the user is trying to compare the two (e.g. to measure performance between the two).

Shouldn't the 32- and 64-bit versions of a package conflict with each
other?  Why would you want both versions installed at once?
