That analogy is flawed. It's about ebuild design and the fact that I
don't just convert my ebuild to _multilib_, but also to
_autotools-utils_, so I have to keep an eye on another provider. >

Please point out where the eclass is hacky. I haven't heard a
technical argument against it despite that you think
autotools-multilib.eclass is better.
That might be true, but then I don't understand why people refuse to
use it which is the only reason I am proposing this.
Also, I am not too lazy to convert go-mono packages. I have already
written the go-mono-multilib.eclass and it looks almost the same as
autotools-multilib-minimal.eclass, so I am wondering why I want
code-duplication in eclasses. >

I don't understand you.
It works on more than one package.
Anyway... as I said, I don't care how this problem is solved. I only
care about the availability of 32bit libs
