Could you clarify this? What happens on 64-bit Linux installations right

Since the 64-bit cleanness isn't quite there yet, we need to install
both a 64-bit and 32-bit on Solaris. Unfortunately Python doesn't seem
to have much support for running like this (in particular, it'll just
give up if it finds an extension .so of the wrong elf class rather than
looking in a 64-bit path or whatever).
