Default dpkg fails to install 32-bit adobe acrobat reader on 64-bit wheezy system: depends issue

No, that's only for source packages and indicates that the package *can*
be built on any architecture. Architecture: all in a binary package means
it can be installed on any architecture; otherwise, it's an
architcture-specific binary package and must be multiarch to be
installable as a non-native architecture (without --force options, of
course).

Actually the program is linked to libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0, which is satisfied by
ia32-libs-gtk. But I digress.

To be precise, a foreign arch package could be installed regardless
of its multiarch status, as long as there's no other instance present
on the system and dpkg has been configured to recognize that foreign
arch.

Oh, right, sorry. If there's no conflict, you can do what you want. If
you want to install multiple architectures of the same package, they all
have to be multiarch.
