Technically these are probably equivalent.  I just felt having mm-32 and
mm-64 makes it more explicit that something can't be shared but really,
that's just directory names and I don't feel strong about them.
I even have some hope that with continuing cleanup mm-32 and mm-64, which
are supposed to contain only things that due to conflicts can't live in
mm, will finally become empty.
