Incidentally, as far as I can tell right now, that is the only path that
will lead me to conclude that pure64 right now is wrong.  More
specifically, multiarch that *works*, and that the dpkg/apt maintainers
can agree with you on, and have implemented.

Multiarch that "works" on Alioth is not necessarily multiarch that
"works" for Debian.  At some point, if a multiarch AMD64 is to become a
reality, the multiarch AMD64 folks *must* resolve the impasse with the
dpkg folks.
