Yes, but that only works if package1.i386 and package2.i386 are in the
x86_64 tree.  Which is not the case for some programs of which you
might want to install a 32-bit version.  For instance, Firefox and
Mozilla are only available as 64-bit packages in the x86_64 tree.  I
personally use the extra i386 repo approach with the arch hardcoded
that Phil presented earlier.
