Replacement to `dpkg --print-subarchitecture'
Okay, in light of all the comments, I've concocted what I hope is a
reasonable solution to the problem. The example program is available
I'd hugely appreciate it if both ARM developers gave it a quick glance
and generic developers check that this sort of thing is okay to go
into base-files or debianutils for potato (which isn't yet fixed up
fully on ARM -- shock horror).
For woody I think everyone would be happy to consider any weirdo scheme
anyone happens to dream up; this is a `for now' thing.
