There are three colors: 32 bit binaries (1), 64 bit binaries (2) and all
other files (0). Yes, colors are numbers in this rainbow.
Files with colors 1 and 2 do not conflict even if their content differs and
the file with the preferred arch is used and the other is ignored or
silently overwritten. No one said it is a beautiful solution...
