32bit rpms will select 64bit packages as the "most desirable" during runTransaction.
Unfortunately, 32bit deps may still exist, and therefore the transaction will
fail w/ unmet dependencies.
Current plan is to do limited depsolving, so long as the results stay within the
the nvre universe of installed packages + delta (basically, don't go pulling in
new package names or version-release-epoch's that are outside of the defined
Note that this will probably require a new server-side call to work correctly,
and will need to be tested against older satellite's to ensure backwards
