Ok so we will probably have the following multilib options

* x86(ABI=x86_32{/lib}) + amd64(ABI=x86_64{lib64/}) +
x32(ABI=x32{/libx32})
* x86/amd64 ( what we already have in amd64 multilib )
* x86/x32

and

* x86 (no multilib for 32-bit processors ) ( what we already have in
x86 profile )

Sounds doable
