Please note that building such a package in the archive not only requires
that multiarch is implemented, it also requires that the buildds be enabled
to support installing packages of the foreign architecture to satisfy build
dependencies. We haven't even begun to have an earnest discussion with the
ftpmasters, release team, and buildd team about what a policy for this would
need to look like - currently the policy remains the existing one, that all
build-dependencies must be satisfied by the current architecture.
