Bug Description

In ubuntu 13.10 I was able to have both the x84_64 boost and i386 boost installed at the same time. I need this because I am compiling some code for a 32bit vm but I also want to be able to run tests on the host machine.

I have installed libboost-all-dev for x86_64 on ubuntu 14.04, and when I try to install libboost-regex-dev:i386 apt-get wants to remove:
