Done that, waaaaaaaayyyyy too many docs and translations gone. I forced
a reinstall of the packages I thought could be the cause (i.e. glibc*,
libgnome, gtk2/glib2 etc.) but without any apparent success.

Anyway, my point was that from my POV multilib is ugly (I think we're
all aware of that and all agree...), and that I still don't like the
fact that it's forced upon all users by default (this is where opinions
are much more mixed).

Arch dependencies isn't something we would have to worry about if we
weren't doing all of this ugly mixing of archs on single systems ;-)
