I use to run both just to test things, certainly my firsto option is 32 bits...
Both version could use the same configuration because that is only text...
Even worse is when the 32bit and 64bit ~/.application file are
incompatible. One should consider that a bug but it has happened.
zinf as an example
My suggestion is: Don't do it. If you need the 32bit version for
something then use it for everything. The benefit of 64bit is generaly
negible anyway. No point in having say a 64bit and 32bit mozilla.
