I believe the intention of this question was around if a single instance
of the daemon should be able to support all architectures hosted on the
system.  For example on a 64 bit system is there any reason that you
would install and run both the 64 bit and 32 bit versions side by side? 
Or would the 64 bit daemon normally be handling all requests?

If so then my understanding is the reporter is saying that it makes more
sense to install to a non-multiarch path such as /usr/lib/fwupd/ instead
of /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/fwupd.


Is this correct?
