Please use instead dpkg-architecture -e or -i options (documented in
the man page), so that we have this code centralized there, and can
extend or fix it in just one place.

You'll have to depend on a new enough version of dpkg (1.13.17) or
conditionally use the feature if that dpkg version is present.

About the bug report, if you find the documentation lacking in
dpkg-architecture's man page I can extend it, otherwise please
close it.
