Re: Architecture: all + M-A: foreign

it might be worth considering whether we could instead solve all the real instances of A->B->C/D in the archive by converting all B to Arch: any in wheezy, and then just allowing the package manager to treat *all* Arch: all packages as implicitly satisfying foreign-arch deps in jessie.

If a Python module depends on an arch:any Python module, then it must not be treated as MA:foreign. Otherwise you would get a dependency chain like this:

foo:amd64 (linked to libpython2.7:amd64) -> python-bar:all -> python-baz:i386

So with your proposal, we would have to convert tons of arch:all Python modules to arch:any.
