Thanks for doing that, Josch. Very useful. And we do clearly need to
get our tools agreeing on the right answers to these questions.

I propose a multiarch session at debconf for such discussion on the
off-chance that definitive conclusions have not been reached
beforehand (or we don't actually agree). I'm hoping that all of you,
Guillem and David might be in attendance? (as well as others that have
taken aqn interest in multiarch).
