I'd recommend against multilibs, unless you have a need for them…  Life is much simpler (and faster).  The usual people to add them are, say the linux people that do a distribution that want to support both, at that point, they'll add it.

Sometimes one might add multilib to enable easier, faster testing.  On targets where there are small numbers of users and the developers want to do a multilib to make testing easier (build once, test twice).  One can have all the beef in the tree, with the multilib in comments.  Easy to turn on, if one wants, but you don't pay the price otherwise.
