Merging is probably not a bad idea, but largely depends on how much extra
is necessary for OpenBSD; certainly, however, we should make sure that at
the very least, the two can be applied cleanly together.

I *strongly* favor wildcard matching in the archtable, to address the issue
of not wanting to file bugs against dpkg every time NetBSD upgrades it's
kernel by a minor revision.
