It strikes me that 95% of the contents of packages files are identical
between i386 and amd64, so download and storage ought to be made much
smaller; this probably needs non-trivial APT work though.

This would be a nice saving for both desktop and server users and would
avoid the question of the cost of keeping i386 enabled on amd64
