Once upon a time, openSUSE provided "-32bit" packages for running
programs under a 32-bit runtime environment on 64-bit systems.

For example, openSUSE 11.1 had a mono-core-32bit package which provided
a `mono32` program for launching apps in a 32-bit process:


This seems to have been discontinued for openSUSE 11.2, but other
distros may provide similar pre-built packages for running programs
within a 32-bit address space on 64-bit platforms.
