It's not a problem as long as you don't have multilib packages
installed. Apt can handle 64bit stuff just fine, what it can't handle is
packages with same n-v-r but different arch simultaneously installed. 

Hmm. In fact, with FC4 you could use apt with x86_64 if you just give up
openoffice. On FC3 grub was dynamically linked, causing glibc.i686
dependency on all x86_64 systems, on FC4 it's statically linked so you
don't need to have 32bit glibc on the system which was the absolute
showstopper for apt on FC-x86_64 earlier.
