There are a few questions that I don't think ever got answered. Do you or 
does anyone have a guess as to when multiarch will make it into Ubuntu in 
the future? Even in some limited capacity. Will Ubuntu wait indefinitely on 
Debian to implement it?
Secondly you mentioned in another email that the ability to run 32bit 
packages may be removed at some point. Can you resond here as to why? What 
purpose would it serve to limit 64bit users ability to modify Ubuntu to 
their needs? Especialy since there are less packages avilable for 64bit 
compaired to 32bit.
