Good point... sure, some projects might not have all (or any) of its
applications available in x64 for linux. And I just found out after a
little research that, surprisingly, this is very common in Windows,
where SETI at Home and Einstein at Home for example, lacks 64-bit support for
most of their apps.

But if one doesn't bother to crunch only for projects (and apps) that
offer x64 linux, then I guess there is no harm in installing boinc with
--no-install-recommends, correct?

And of course, if one wants to crunch 32-bit, they gotta have 32-bit
libs. Fair enough.
