It's not a patch for lib32, but a patch to ensure shlibs for the base
system are properly tracked.  Converse to your reply, it tracks shlibs
*except* lib32.

"Do things."  I have this running several machines in my network, one is
a CUPS server on an RPI-B, for example.  Basically, best test cases are
the day-to-day stuff.

An upstream repository for an upgrade path is planned, but not until
this is merged to head.  And even after that, infrastructural changes
will be necessary.
