I downloaded the kodi-data deb, unpacked it using dpkg-deb, edited the
control file dropping the Multiarch: foreign and changing the
Architecture: to armhf.  Now, the resulting package depended on the
armhf versions of some python3 package with native code, which in turn
pulled the whole python3 stack to armhf.

Sure, that'd be a great solution also to contain that code.
