Amusingly, the way we do it in Ubuntu is a huge hassle in some cases,
and at least some of us would rather have binNMUs.  (That's partly
because it's a manual process; if it were automated it would be better,
but it still wouldn't solve the problem that in some cases you really do
want to do single-architecture rebuilds without having to rebuild a
stack of packages on slower architectures entirely unnecessarily.  Hi,
