Of course it is, but this is meaningless comparison; they are not
alternative things, they are complimentary things. A new architecture
(port) is a new architecture. Multiarch is a way of installing things
from more than one arch at a time, and satisfying dependencies between
And the flavour support I was muttering about is something else again
- to make it possible to build, install and use different
optimisations/ISA levels within one architecture, rather than having
to make a whole new arch for every one.
