It would be nice if you could two join the debian-multiarch project on
I've done some work on the dpkg side and library packages in the past
and I will be updating the patches there for the Linuxtag Mini-Debconf
talk I'm giving. I'm hoping to again provide a apt repository there that
is A) [c]debootstrapable and B) fully multiarchified. However far I get
with what will be there next month a multiarch capable apt could actualy
be practically tested.
