on a system that runs code in multiple architectures, what architecture's libraries are in the normal places for finding libraries?
So Lets assume that it can solve that problem, which could otherwise be solved with some intelligence in the dynamic linker (which it already has) and an environment variable for runtime loaded libraries, it really only replaces it with a different one in that no package manager can reasonably handle different parts of a file belonging to different packages. So distros would need to force bloated binaries on everyone, support yet another effective arch for bloatbins, or implement some crazy fatelf binary merging in their package management system.
