This seems to me to be clean and "correct".   It has the result that if
you are running a 32-bit version of python, you just leave lib64 out of
PYTHONPATH and the 64-bit-specific code will not be found first.
(Fedora should have a lib32/python2.4/site-packages, but it depends on
path ordering to do that).

Despite the fact that this solution works, I do not think it is
"correct". No python application distributed by Fedora is split
between lib and lib64. Packages are either installed in lib or lib64.
The only time packages appare to be split between the two folders is
when both the i386 and x86_64 version is installed. From what I know,
SuSE also install x86_64 python programs only in lib64. I therefore
think the correct solution would be to install everything either in
lib64 or in lib.
