I want to install mozart:i386 on an AMD64, but it depends on the same architecture version of Emacs. I've already got Emacs installed, and since Emacs Lisp is not architecture dependant, there does not need to be an architecture specific dependancy here.

Mozart can not easily be compiled for x86_64. It is the language used by a very interesting and likely popular computer science textbook (the cathedral book), and so I think we ought to have an installable version of it. Thanks.
