Service files in lib/datadir

A while ago, the default conf for the session bus was changed to look up 
service files in datadir rather than libdir. The reason was to fix 64/32 
bit parallel installations, but I don't think this is the correct fix 
since it breaks the semantics of datadir (services are not shareable 
across different archs for example). It also breaks existing installed 
services since the service files have to be moved, which is bad even 
though dbus isn't supposed to be stable yet.

Is there some other way to fix the 64/32 bit problem?
