I find that this might be better, than using /lib64, for 64-bit
mode libraries, because we need to modify almost everything that
uses dlopen, right ?

I am assuming that dlopen calls need to be modified to look for 
/usr/lib64 rather than /usr/lib on 64-bit architectures running
64-bit applications.

This sounds like a rather drastic change.
