This would be useful for running older ABI code on x86_64, and improves compatibility for other stuff

That requires significantly more than just the ABI ; that also requires support for running a 32-bit executable from 64-bit mode, which is a bit more of an undertaking.

I am not saying it is just the ABI you need to change, we need changes to the scheduler and runtime_loader too, that's why I put the component as System.
