Purely 64bit?

I think this is a bad idea, unless they are going to go with things like nspluginwrapper...

Todays computer industry simply isn't ready for 64bit desktops (which as far as I know is where arch targets).

I think they should consider implementing something like multilib. Arch is known for its speed and simplicity, would be a shame if their 64bit offerings weren't really relivant for desktop users...


EDIT: Simplicity of design, not necessarily use... just to clear that up...
