Hi Tollef,

Of course I could use a chroot (even though I didn't know that schroot could 
permit me to use my home folder inside a chroot).

But then, why do some bother with multiarch implementation? ;-)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't multiarch do the same thing as ia32-
apt-get but at the distribution level?
