With that example you're going to have to rebuild every package for i386 as well. Fundamental changes to the packaging system will require that anyway.

TBH I don't give a crap about /lib64 myself - a pure 64bit debian would do fine. I want 64bit because I develop software that needs testing in 64bit... if gentoo actually worked properly I'd be using that now (they just compile everything 64bit to /lib then have a symlink to /lib64 for compatibility, which sounds like the best way.).
