AFAICT, that's the key - am I right in thinking that if the arch:all
doesn't need to depend strictly on any of the arch:any that there is no

Let's see if I've got that right: One source package, 5 arch:any, 1

If that arch:all package does *not* depend strictly on any of the
binaries (a simple -doc package), is (= ${Source-Version}) still a
problem in the dependencies between the arch:any binary packages themselves?

e.g. libfoo-dev depends on libfoo (= ${Source-Version})
libfoobar depends on libfoo (= ${Source-Version})
