I would strongly suggest not hardcoding this list and instead
harvesting the Architecture fields of the Release files for oldstable
-> experimental on ftp.d.o, ftp.d-p.o and maybe archive.d.o.

We have made this mistake and similar ones (usually hardcoding release
codenames) in the QA infrastructure and it has bitten us hard in the
past. Lets not make that mistake here.

The release files are the closest to a canonical list of ports. There
are other ports out there not maintained on d-p.o (like the Interix or
Solaris ones for example) but I don't think we need to bother about
those until they move closer to Debian.
