Include 32-bit system libraries in Mint 64bit

I think Linux Mint 64bit should have the 32-bit system libraries included by default due to lack of support for 32bit software :D

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Not going to happen I think (ISO size concerns and majority of users won't need it), but as with previous versions you can just install ia32-libs to pull in the most common (250 or so) 32 bit libraries. Though Ubuntu has dropped that convenient ia32-libs package from its repositories, Clem has added it to the Linux Mint repository :)

Clem is a pragmatic and practical man :D The output is what matters :D
