Is there a way to make cups:i368 not break cups:amd64 ?

I am posting here a brief follow-up on this previous post of mine, that has yet to receive a satisfactory response.

I do not understand enough about all the intricacies of cups to know if the answer to the topic question is an unequivocal "no", but if not, it would seem to be extremely useful to know how to have both 32- and 64-bit cups running side by side, because otherwise, no i386 program will have access to cups printing on amd64 hardware, and in particular no windows 95/8 programs running in wine can print through the "windows" printing system provided by wine (via wine32), which strikes me as a serious deficiency (the only one I have yet encountered in wine 8) ).

Edit: The answer to the topic question is (sort of) yes.

i have always found that emailing the maintainer is a great about finding out what you want is on the radar screen

aptitude show cups says this is the maintainer address - debian-printing@lists.debian.org

get in there. perhaps provide some feedback on what you find out.
iMac - MacOS and Windows 10 (Bootcamp)/ Debian Sid (External SSD)
Laptop (64-bit) - Debian Sid, Win10,
Kodi Box - Debian Sid
