Ia32-libs break up/clean up, bi-arch pulseaudio library packages, and what we need to do to get there.

During the sprint a couple of weeks ago, Colin indicated to me that due to some ia32-libs clean up work that he was doing, bi-arch packages for the pulseaudio libraries would likely need to be made available for karmic. Now since Steve Langasek has indicated to me that multi-arch is likely to not make it for karmic, I need to get to work on bi-arch pulseaudio libraries. However, in order to achieve this, there are a fair number of source packages that also need to have bi-arch libraries produced, so that bi-arch pulseaudio libraries can be built. Below is the list of source packages that need to be touched.
I am certainly willing to help with this list, but if others in the community, or package maintaiers for Ubuntu could help me out with this, I would very much appreciate it. Once bi-arch libraries have been built from all of these source packages, I can move forward and get pulseaudi osorted.
For a good example of how to produce bi-arch library packages, I suggest you have a look at the alsa-lib and alsa-plugins source packages. If you have any questions, I am happy to try and answer them as best I can.
Finally, I was thinking of tracking this work in a bug on Launchpad, but if anybody has a better suggestion, I'm all ears.
Thanks in advance.
