Not if you're debugging core files, right?  Everything that works for live-debugging on native also needs to work for introspecting core files.  And, in an ideal world, also works for live cross-debugging to a completely different arch using a debug server.

This isn't just about "32-bit binaries on a 64-bit platform"... we really should be thinking about this as a general cross-debugging problem.
