I beg to disagree here, well kind of. A *working* system that allows me to just
"<place your package manager here> install <some 32 bit stuff>"
is far superior to a chroot setup especially for users less
experienced/interested in technical details. Now whether the current system is
*working* is a different story.

And yes, I absolutely agree that getting such changes done on ones system
*without* notice and *without* full functionality is a no-go, as is btw
changing libc6-i386 without communication with the ia32 people, if it really
happened that way.
