Well, since debpool wants to keep dependencies at minimum I do not know
if upstream author will accept your FAM support, let's try.

As for multi arch repository I think it is a really good thing.

Other features I miss from debpool are:
 - minimal pool tree (patch in BTS)
 - use of gpg-agent instead of keeping passphrase on fs (patch in BTS)
 - a command to delete packages from the repository
   (e.g.: debpool -d package_name)

With those little changes it will be perfect for me :)
