Waiting on ftp-master confirmation for this. The idea (see earlier in
the thread) was to have

Package: ia32-libs
Architecture: amd64
Depends: ia32-libs-i386

Package: ia32-libs-i386
Architecture: i386
Depends: libfoo, libbar, libbaz, ...
Multi-Arch: foreign

The trick with an extra package would avoid the not yet permitted
"Depends: libfoo:i386" syntax.
