Well, despite policy not settled people started to multi-arch enable
-dev packages in a quite aggressively.
Because well, it's convenient.

I found 140+ dev packages on my system that do so.


And well, since these are multi-arch same and presumably
co-installable, that mean that .so symlink is not in /usr/lib/ any
more for all of them.
So we better figure out the Multi-arch-dev story sooner than later =)
