This is a naive question, having not looked at the current debian bi-arch
framework, but shouldn't i386 and amd64 packages be able to coexist?  The
amd64 support should ideally install all its binaries and libraries into
something like /usr/lib64/{bin,lib}

What are the longterm plans for debian i386/amd64 bi-arch support?
