But you _also_ ship Firefox x86-64, and other components as well.
That can be confusing for many, as well as updates.

Now I'll be the first one to say SuSE Linux x86-64 is _better_ than
Fedora Core x86-64 at this. But it still could use some refinement.

Is there a "step-by-step guide" to guaranteeing browser/multimedia bliss
using i586/i686 binaries/libraries/plug-ins under x86-64, while
everything else is x86-64?
