Too bad this doesn't work anyway... or are all the comments I've seen on
various lists that 64bit kernel/video drivers don't work with 32bit

I see no point in the biarch stuff for amd64 either. There are so few
Linux commercial apps that need anything more than libc6 that waiting
years for a 64bit port at all is really pointless.

And while you keep trying to stick to this biarch stuff that will take
years to resolve  the other dists already have native amd64 ports:
Fedora, Gentoo, Mandrake, RHEL, SuSE, etc...
