The later if the former is not working. Since we have no multiarch yet
and acceptance of patches leading up to it is going very slowly it
looks like etch will remain without multiarch. So we need the extra
copy to have something working.

Small correction, quinn-diff does the actual filtering (here).

Hmm, must be just me then. Here quinn-diff already filters it out so
it doesn't reaches wanna-build itself. But that might just be one of
the several small differences to the official buildd suite.

mrvn@storage:~/t% quinn-diff 2>&1 | grep pcsx
[quinn-diff]: ignoring: pcsx has an architecture field of "i386" which
doesn't include amd64.

Makes no sense to include a source not for this arch.
