Yeap. I proposed some solutions to that problem, but sadly didn't
get any reply yet.

I agree. Also, Nikita's documentation entries of dpkg-cross point to
email@example.com, so it's a de-facto starting point for every new

I also proposed some patches for dpkg-cross, and some general thoughts
about architectures, especially about the conflict between the internal
dpkg-cross tables and the dpkg-architecture tables.
I'm working on w32 cross compiling.
Sadly, Nikita was the only person who responded to my proposals in that
