Why did you expect them?
We only ship 32bit versions of libraries 32bit apps might link
to. However The PA server itself (and hence its modules) is only
available in the native word with of your CPU, i.e. 64bit.

Yes, that's the idea.

I try to keep compatibility in the protocol between versions. However
there is not test suite to verify this. Also, while I am quite sure
compat of the protocol for pure socket clients should work well, this
might not be the case for local clients. It is expected that for local
clients you update all or nothing.

Not sure what you mean. ndiswrapper is a win32 compt layer for windows
network drivers and flash is flash, so I don't see how this fits
I personally believe that multilib is a desaster and big failure. It's
hard enough to keep that working in the upstream distro -- but doing
that in manual builds is even worse.

"Normal" users should use distributions, not roll everything
