Your wish is my command.

Okay now that I have your answer I understand my assumptions were
mistaken, only the libgl/nvidia-utils packages are 'app-facing' in that

A nagging question that I've been having in the back of my mind, how
similar is Arch's lib32 stuff with the multi-lib stuff other distros
(random example Ubuntu since that's my previous experience) do. When I
first started using Arch I set a chroot up for my
wine/skype/google-earth on the understanding that lib32 would always be
'unofficial', but recently I've seen more lib32 packages making it to

Would lib32 make Arch multi-lib, then?
