Description: This software is designed to be used with plugins, and all plugins are written for 32bit only.

Additional info:
All versions
It would make more sense to have an i686[multilib] of this package instead of x86_64[community].

Steps to reproduce:
Simply installing the x86_64 package from [community] renders 32bit plugins unusable.
There is no [multilib] package and no [multilib] dependencies available for x86_64
users, which forces users to install a package that is incompatible with any plugins.
This task depends upon

As far as I know, only the X11 plugin uses i686 assembler code. Remaining plugins work just fine for me on x86_64. I've added nasm as makedepends for the i686 version, and left x86_64 as is.
