- there are no autobuilders configured to build arch: all packages in debian
- allowing arch: all packages to be binNMUed breaks the invariant that
  packages may use ${binary:Version} for package relationships on other
  arch: any packages from the same source package, and ${source:Version} for
  package relationships on arch: all packages from the source package
