Here's an attempt at a shortened allowed-packages template:
_Description: 32-bit packages to use:
Please choose how much of the package management system ia32-apt-get
should be granted the power to interfere with:
* None - ia32-apt-get will not interfere with the package management
system. This option disables 32-bit support via ia32-apt-get.
* Libraries - ia32-apt-get will create and install 32-bit versions of
libraries (recognizable by the prefix "ia32-" in the package name).
* All - ia32-apt-get will also create and install 32-bit versions of
applications. This is required if you want to be able to download and
install third-party applications such as Skype. This option requires
/etc/apt/preferences to be modified to ensure 64-bit packages are
always preferred when available, as described in
The package synopses could be more DevRef-compliant, too, but
otherwise the control file's okay. Mind you, that posted version's
JBR with qualifications in linguistics, experience as a Debian
sysadmin, and probably no clue about this particular package
