Thanks for filing these bugs, but there are a couple of issues here:

1) This appears to be a mass bug filing; it should probably be discussed
on debian-devel@lists.debian.org first. [If that happened, and I missed
it, I'm sorry in advance.]

2) This particular issue in scowl itself would be trivially fixed by
#666772, which has a patch, and has been open for two years with that
While I don't see a problem with adding this particular fix to scowl (it
really is Multi-Arch: foreign), we should just fix this archive-wide
once and for all.
