Slight digression, but I always forget to ask this:

Why are people so against installing 32-bit libraries? I've never 
understood this -- some people even opt for virtualization of a 32-bit 
release of their entire OS within which to run a few key 32-bit apps 
instead of just installing the 32-bit compatibility libraries.

What gives? Is there a technical argument against this?
