You're not telling me that a change from /lib/ to /lib64 (or /lib32,
/libn32 on MIPS) is "trivial" but a change to /lib-<arch> "means a
change to every package in debian", are you?

And I was not talking to change the position of "libs and binaries",
only of .so files. Maybe you should re-read my proposal in
<mid:[🔎] 90oM4YWJcDD@gmane.3247.org>; you obviously have gotten it wrong.
