Does it work with binfmt-support?

README.Debian would seem to be the natural place for this. Admittedly since
none of this is package-specific it shouldn't really go there either, but
it's unrealistic to expect all our users to know how to do this.

What's the use-case for this? People running games on small ARM boards hooked
up to a TV?

Yes; but the main issue is technical, you can't run dpkg like that from a
package's maintainer scripts.
