Like I said, then, you didn't actually read or understand why proposing
multilib paths doesn't work.  You realize conceptually, I hope, that
there's no guarantee of uniqueness in lib/lib64/lib32/libsf/libhf once
you cross the base CPU architecture boundary, right?

Sure, I said that /libhf/ would *accidentally* work for
us right now, due to sheer luck, and you're running with that as saying
that we clearly have no problem here worth solving.  When the next
architecture clashes with linkers on another (hint: it almost certainly
will), do we get to argue about this all over again in six months,
instead of codifying a new and saner practice now?
