Isn't it possible to have a system similar to apt-build?

One would do "ia32-apt-convert ia32-libfoo" that would convert libfoo 32bits 
package and its dependencies, put it in a local repository. Then the user 
could install ia32-libfoo with apt-get, aptitude, whatever.


PS: Of course, there would be a ia32-apt-update to update all the ia32-*
