Although I do worry that as things currently stand it looks like we are heading for another Debian/Fedora (and thus derivatives) split along this axis too, which won't make life any easier for 3rd-parties. I am hopeful that other distros will come to appreciate the cleanness of the multiarch mechanism for mixed-ABI libraries and binaries, but I guess we won't know for a few years yet how ubiquitous it will become.
Personally, the more I use it the more impressed I become. It's so nice being able to _remove_ big chunks of complexity in packages and packaging that used to work around its absence.
