From what I've read on the mailing lists, the biarch port was stalled because they resolved to move in favour of a multiarch approach which would solve the problem in a cleaner way that should involve less breakage, and permit more than 3 ABIs on the one architecture. All this proposed for after the release of sarge, of course. See: (current multiarch proposal) (description of what the filesystem layout would look like) (biarch vs multiarch) (another succinct but informative thread about pure64/biarch/multiarch)
