That was actually what I was thinking of. I listed libc6 as an
example of how it could be done:

21:29:54 arthur@turing:~$ dpkg -L libc6-i586


And I don't even have to install i686 stuff that I don't need.

Installation of such packages should be handled automaticall by
apt though.

They are really completely different things, so don't mix them up, but they
have a close relation to each other.
