The reason, for the record, is because Debian wants to be able to support
multiarch with more than two architectures. The /lib32 vs. /lib64
distinction doesn't allow one to use the same underlying machinery to
easily install, say, armel library and development packages because you're
doing development in a cross-compiled environment. The general
/lib/<triplet> layout allows you to install packages from as many
different architectures as you desire.
