Apart from the fact that the dep-wait count went back quite a bit thanks
to BD-Uninstallable, IIRC it should just work because the result of a
linux-any in the .dsc Architectures will result in a arch:any Dep and
thus be listed as such in the Packages file where the dep-waiting acts
upon. It looks to me that only quinn-diff will need a bit of poking.
(Of course you never know in the current mess, but still.)
