I'm not quite sure where that came from... from what I've heard lately,
the requirement is that we will be able to move to multiarch once it
shows up. While multiarch is still in such an infancy that we don't
have a great deal to go on for such a plan, everyone seems committed to
it and I believe that it wouldn't be too difficult.
