Hi!

Emulatorman and his brrrrrrother Coadde have had discovered a way to
compile packages for 32bits architecture in 64bits computers more
details here
https://wiki.parabolagnulinux.org/Package_maintainer_guide#32_bits_Chroot_on_64_bits_machine however, both Emulatorman and myself though that would be wonderful and more easy have a option to switch between 64 and 32 bits architecture, what's your opinion about this feature, Arch devs are willing to implement that? If not, may you could implement it?
