* Currently; If you do not need 64bit compatibility now you will probably want to install only 32bit binaries. However if in the future you run into software that requires 64bit compatibility. With the status quo it would require you to re-install the OS
So, because some distribution's biarch support sucks enough that it can't install a bunch of 64-bit dependencies into /lib64 and /usr/lib64 when you install a 64-bit binary, we need a kernel hack?
Please. There are good arguments for FatELF, but this is not one of them.
