I think that a multiarch port is a good idea, because it uses the possibilities
AMD64 offers. so if there are problems, we have to solve them in a way we can
I prefere a proper solution instead a of quick implementation.

Most of the Application can't be portet to a 64bit system in a fast way i think.
especially third party products. in native 64bit port you can't use them till
are portet. Or do anyone think that a proprietary Game (doom, quake, ....) will
portet? i don't think so.
