This is just wrong, which makes me think/hope it's just temporary. There's no need to automatically install ia32-libs; any user who runs Steam on 64bit knows he has to install that package and it's obvious not everyone has dpkg. Also, I haven't seen any other distro other than Ubuntu to have 'arch' as an executable; still wondering why they did that instead of 'uname -m'.
I know Steam beta is focused on Ubuntu, but it's not supposed to run only on Ubuntu; it also has other distros listed in game requirements.
Now, since I'm at it, I'd like to say that I played BoUT and, unlike other adventure games I tried (hint: Monkey Island) it had puzzles that actually made sense. Great game!
