During this release cycle I'm hoping to get rid of the 'amd64' kernel
flavour in i386.  The linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64 package is already
installable in wheezy with amd64 as a foreign arch.  However, the
linux-headers-*-amd64 packages are not, as they depend on a specific
major version of gcc (e.g. gcc-4.6). I think that a dependency on
'gcc-4.6 | gcc-4.6:i386' might fix that, but what would britney think of
