Right, I imagine it will involving reworking of quite a few steps in
the process, and again this would be only for 'multi-arch: same'. So,
instead of the buildd (or wherever that is done now) creating the
changelog/timestamp, instead create one 'multi-arch: same' changelog
before passing it off to the buildds, and then after the build is
done, replace the automatically architecture-specific changelog with
the 'multi-arch: same' one. The reason for rebuilding a 'multi-arch:
same' package by definition should be for the same reason on all
Non 'multi-arch: same' binnmus would not need to change.
