As a fairly new AMD64 user, I have to say that maintaining a 32-bit chroot is 
relatively painless. 

I've gotten used to using 'apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade; 
schroot -p "apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade", and it does all it 
should do: update and upgrade my both installations.

As such, I'd be very inclined to keep the 64bit and use the chroot for the 
32-bit apps needed. Ofcourse, I have way lesser dependencies on it than you 
do, so YMMV.

The only things I really need the chroot for right now is Opera (+flash) and 
Openoffice. I'm tempted to try out the 64-bit build for the latter... anyone 
here with experience on that? Is it any usable?
