It's not at all about technical purity. This makes no changes to Arch
64, it's separate. Arch64 remains pure.

Technically, it's better than the existing lib32 efforts too.

Let's be realistic here. A computer is a tool to be used. Not that
great a tool if it doesnt do what you need it to. Some people need
flash and other closed source things.
