1) Will this allow building grub from amd64/no-multilib, thus avoiding 
having to have grub-static?  That's the one thing I don't like about no-
multilib, having to use the pre-built grub-static.

2) What about grub-2, and while we're on it, is a switch to that expected 
any time soon, and/or is there a grub-static-2 in the wings?  With the 
grub-1 gpt patches (and hopefully btrfs support at some point) I'm not 
sure that staying with grub-1 isn't my preference in any case, but I do 
worry how long that's going to be viable, especially with btrfs coming 
and no grub-1 btrfs support that I'm aware of, and I have literally /no/ 
idea what might or might not be in gentoo's pipeline,
grub-wise.

3) One thing I very much like about no-multilib is the shorter gcc (and 
glibc) builds.  This will kill that (for gcc), right?  USE flag activated 
to avoid that for those who want to?  (Of course I realize that it's 
unlikely I can keep/get both the shorter gcc builds and support for grub 
builds.)
