Ah.. that's sanely done then, apt should have zero problems with that. Rpm
is supposed to handle overlapping i386 and x86_64 packages through file
and transaction "colors" (whee.. I see colors...) but it's rather .. erm,
rough around the edges and the implications makes your mind boggle. See
this thread if you dont have nightmares very easily (discusses both ia64
and x86_64 issues):
