zlib is rather low in the stack, so is going to be one of the last packages
to drop biarch support.  Currently, ia32-libs, wine, lsb,
nvidia-graphics-drivers, and zsnes all depend on biarch zlib packages.

Of course, all of these packages appear to be specific to amd64, so I don't
know why Mark would be adding new biarch packages for s390.  You should
probably ask him.
