What exactly would you expect britney to do here? Assume that if the
dependencies are satisfiable on /any/ other architecture then
I guess one could hard-code assumptions in to the (hypothetical) code
like "accept i386 packages for amd64 m-a: allowed", but I'm not sure
that's the right solution. In any case, the eve of freeze doesn't seem
like a great time to be making non-trivial changes to britney's concept
of installability checking. YMMV, E&OE.
