Unless there is going to be a way for the user to find out that item X
only exists for debian-sparc, I think one per architecture.
While I think a union list might be more interesting, I don't think
it's going to be more usable.
Let the record show, though, that I've never actually _used_ the
Contents file for anything.

Abolish. Same caveat as above.
