I think that this'll just have to be accepted - ignore the binNMU versioning
when comparing versions for co-installation, but take the docs from the
highest-numbered binNMU.

I don't know how a binNMU for one architecture followed by a binNMU for
another is handled, but it seems reasonable to me that the newer one will
have to include the changelog from the older one and, therefore, must have a
higher version number. Otherwise, which binNMU changelog entry you get is a
matter of chance, and entries may even be lost in later uploads.
