Re: Concerns about AMD64 port

That sentence is misleading.

Any port would be able to run both 64-bit and 32-bit apps with an
appropriate kernel.  A 64-bit only port would need to have a separate
i386 system in a chroot to do this.  A multi-arch port would be able to
install i386 .debs natively alongside amd64 ones, with (presumably) the
amd64 ones being preferred by apt where they exist.
