If it's possible (according to ftp-masters) to have the old ia32-libs 
packages adapted to the new libc6-i386; the best thing, for me, would be to 
have a minimal[1] ia32-libs package in the archive and an ia32-archive tool 
for those who want other ia32-* packages or wants to keep up to date with 
library versions.


[1] Minimal in the sense of the required libraries for packages needing i386 
in main (only wine?).
