I suppose it'd be nice to be able to use !foo in the Architecture: line
for cases where something is known not to be supportable on a
particular small subset of arches, through toolchain bugs or whatever.

This smells like something dpkg/dpkg-source would have to support
directly, probably by substituting the list of arches into the field at
dpkg-source -b time.  Even so, I wonder if any external tools would
have a problem with the Architecture: line inside debian/control not
being the same as in the .dsc..
