Search for 'multiarch'. I understand (and/or hope) that in etch
the multiarch effort will get off the ground.

Multiarch means that you can install for example both 32-bits and
64-bits packages on a system with an x86_64 CPU and kernel. There is
a 32-bits 'bash' package and a 64-bits 'bash' package and you can
install either one. In your case, there would also be a 32-bits-uclibc

You can even use a standard install and later install the
32-bits-uclibc packages to replace the normal packages - voila.
