Which, as far as i understand the issue at hand, is the important part
here: We do parallel runs of a-f, so each a-f call is only for one arch
inside one suite. Ie. one amd64/unstable, one i386/testing, etc.
This is true for all dinstall calls, only difference for stable point
releases, but there it doesnt matter as we can only use the change with
the bug for wheezy and later, so time enough to fix it up.
