At this point, if amd64 makes it into Sarge at all, it's going to be in
a "pre-release" state.  In other words, while it may mostly function it
won't be up to the quality standard of the rest of the system.

That's too bad, but there's not much I can do about it.

My proposal does not conflict with multiarch.

That said, everybody in debian is going to have to agree to multiarch
before it gets implemented properly.  It's a fairly massive undertaking.
