It's incredibly confusing. Really, what's more clear?

Build-Depends: type-handling, fooishbar | hurd-i386


Build-Depends: fooishbar [!hurd-i386]

? They both do exactly the same thing, except that the latter clearly
says out loud that you do /not/ need fooishbar on hurd-i386, whereas the
other requires some brain parsing and quite some thought.

The amount of time between slipping on the peel and landing on the
pavement is precisely one bananosecond
