That's not very practical. You can install packages in ia32-aptitude
an remove what you have installed there but since aptitude and
ia32-aptitude do not share the database of automatically installed
packages you have to go to aptitude when removing a previously
installed package to have its automatically installed dependencies
removed as well.
