Either way is OK by me.  I didn't think about slackpkg+ breakage...Until
14.2 goes stable, I'm not using slackpkg+ and am also limiting slackpkg
use.  I also don't use sbopkg.  I was just thinking I needed to tag the
2 possible nvidia-driver versions (pure 64-bit and multilib/compat32)
since I ended up getting confused as to which package I was testing
here. I agree that we should try to do this in the most compatible way
as possible.

I was also thinking it might be time to separate out the COMPAT32 bits
into a separate package, akin to what Alien Bob does with his multilib
packages.  Its been a bit tedious to keep up with changes.

If you look at Alien Bob's multilib packages, for core system he uses:


and for the COMPAT32 converted files:


with TAG in this case = compat32

This, at least here, was completely compatible with slackpkg/slackpkg+
