I think I understand: a binary package of libnbio-java will only be
available for the architecture(s) I provide (right now, i386) and users
on other architectures will have to build the .deb themselves from the
source package.  Is this correct?

Yes, unfortunately, I can't build nbio build with those suites, so I'm
stuck with Blackdown for now.

Thanks for the information...
