The opinion tends to become that lib64 is ugly, and Linux is a free
system, so let's just make the amd64 arch run 64bit binaries as we
can just build everything in 64 bit mode. (and happily LART people
who think sizeof(int) == sizeof(long) while we're at it ;)

Yes, there are proprietary applications that are 32bit. Yes, those
people have to adapt and offer 64bit binaries too. They'll have to,

Using 32 bit binaries (only) on amd64 looks like you've just bought
the wrong processor for what you wanted to do :)
