Possible bugs can easily be found, and then fixed, by exposing packages to…
users. Experimental also means only people pulling it will be exposed to
it anyway.

I can make that NMU, point taken.

What's the issue then?

Whatever works for you.

What is the current plan? We're *months* already past any schedule that
might have been proposed by yourself, or proxied by Raphaël, since you
most of the time try and avoid answering publicly to legitimate
questions. Indeed, your fellow developers have been working hard for a
very long time on: multiarch specification, initial patch crafting, and
patch merging in various packages. Why are all those efforts stalled?
Just because there might be some bugs left in dpkg's multiarch support?
Time to find them and fix them!

We need dpkg's multiarch support. Not today. Months ago. Please make it
possible for your fellow developers to catch up and make it a reality,
